Sophie & Max’s Visit to DEAU Cognac

In the late summer of 2013 we had the pleasure of visiting DEAU Cognac; a brand that we were aware of, but were not yet that familiar with. It gave us the chance to both meet some wonderful people, and also to taste some very fine cognac.

Even the trip to get there...

ABK6 10-year anniversary Dinner

It's not easy to start a Cognac brand... We know the role the big players and the medium-sized family-run Cognac houses play - they are powerful. 10 years for a young Cognac brand such as ABK6 may seem like a blink of an eye when comparing it to Martell's 300 years, but it's actually a hell of an achievement! We were invited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Cognac ABK6, hosted by the wonderful Elodie Abécassis and her father Francis. They invited their...
