Bache-Gabrielsen launches Years in Cask cognac range

Cognac producer Bache-Gabrielsen has launched a tailor-made collection of high-aged spirits.

The Years in Cask range comprises four single-cask vintage cognacs. The liquids, aged 20, 23, 25 and 38 years are all bottled with their natural colour.

Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, general manager and fourth generation of the family house, said: Our aim is to highlight the years of maturation in cask to demonstrate the real impact of the oak on the cognac. For optimum maturity, some of these vintage cognacs were placed in demijohns after ageing and stored in our paradise."

The Years in Cask 20 Years Old is a Grande Champagne vintage cognac, filled into cask in 2002. The 23 Years Old is also a Grand Champagne vintage, which was filled into cask in 1999. The 25 Years Old and 38 Years Old are both Fins Bois vintages: the 25 Years Old was filled to cask in 1988 and aged for 25 years in oak before being transferred to demijohn for nine years, while the 38 Years Old was aged in oak for 38 years then spent 11 years in demijohn.

Jean-Philippe Bergier, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen's cellar master, said: "These cognacs show particular qualities of maturation and complexity, with a distinctive taste profile. The collection offers diversity and total transparency on the journey of each of the four cognacs." 

The limited-edition Years in Cask cognacs are available from from July.
