A truly spectacular offering from Bache-Gabrielsen, considered the jewel in the crown of their range.
One of the bestselling Cognac houses in the Scandinavian markets, Bach-Gabrielsen takes its name from its founder, Thomas, a Norwegian Lieutenant who left the army to establish a Cognac company in 1903.
The Cognac has been produced with 90% Ugni Blanc and 10% Folle Blanche grapes from the premier cru of Grande Champagne, and has been aged in French Limousin oak barrels.
The oldest spirit in this blend – quite staggeringly – dates back to 1917! Whilst the youngest (youngest!) was distilled way back in 1960. This is a Hors d’Âge Cognac worthy of that title.
Bache-Gabrielsen Hors d'Âge opens with a soft, honeyed peach flavour, accompanied by notes of dried grape, figs, prunes, milk chocolate, oily walnut, cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla, old polished oak, rancio, leather, tobacco leaf and sandalwood.
This is an exceptional offering of a genuinely rare quality.
Each bottle is beautifully presented with a wooden presentation box complete with metal closure
