COGNAC ABK6 is owned and run by the father daughter team of Francis and Elodie Abecassis. Domaine Abecassis produces the Cognac brands of Leyrat and Reviser but in 2005 Elodie and her Father noticed a gap in the market the need for a modern Cognac brand to appeal to a new generation of Cognac drinkers and ABK6 was born. The name 'ABK6' is taken from the shorthand the family have always used to write their surname so is pronounced (pronounced A-be-ca-sis). ABK6 offers cognacs of exceptional smoothness with an aromatic fresh style presented in elegant stylish modern packaging. Each style is blended from a selection of very old eaux-de-view (much older than the legal requirements per style) and showcases the fruit of the 3 Domaines including Domaine de Dizedon in Grande Champagne from which they are blended. Francis and Elodie Abecassis firmly believe blending 'eaux-de-vie' from a single estate gives the ABK6 cognacs an inimitable character and depth. Following its launch in 2005 ABK6 has been a great success and has won several major international awards including World's Best Cognac at the World Cognac Awards 2014 for the ABK6 VSOP and a Gold Medal & Best in Class at the ISC 2012 for the ABK6 XO Family Réserve. Domaine Abecassis has also been awarded the 'Excellence in Craftsmanship' award for its Cognac brands at the ISC 2010 and 'Cognac Producer of the Year' at the New York International Spirits Competition in 2014. Domaine Abecassis own 3 estates across the Cognac region including Domaine de Dizedon in Grande Champagne Domaine Champagne Drilhon in Petite Champagne and Domaine de Chez Maillard in Fins Bois. The ABK6 range includes VS VSOP XO Family Réserve Vintage 1985 Extra Limited Edition 'ICE' and Honey Cognac Liqueur.
