LES BRÛLERIES MODERNES // HOLD UP GIN

Launch of a unique gin

The Gin Hold Up is the result of a collaboration between the distiller's know-how and the imagination of a crime novel writer. The result is a perfect cocktail that combines precision, inspiration and passion. Hold Up is an artisanal gin distilled in the Cognac region. Its unique recipe highlights the quintessence of carefully selected botanicals including the tonka bean, anise or coriander. The complex and very aromatic will appeal to fans of gin, whether it is simply accompanied by a tonic, Negroni or any other cocktail he will make a base more than convincing. So, ready for the break of the century?

LES EXCLUSIFS OF JULES GAUTRET // COGNAC ET PINEAU

BRAND LAUNCH

Jules Gautret created his cognac house in 1847 when he was 21 years old, barely major. He becomes one of the youngest Chai Masters in the region. This precocity illustrates a very strong personality, characterized by audacity, discovery or the spirit of adventure. Initially alone and without employees, he had to learn all facets of the business to meet the demands of his clients. Jules Gautret's Exclusives reflect the philosophy of their founder: they illustrate the boldness and mastery shown by Jules Gautret when starting this great adventure and throughout his life, his thirst for discovery, his spirit of adventure. Jules Gautret's Exclusives range consists of 3 cognacs (VS, VSOP and XO) as well as 3 pineaux (white, rosé and very old).

MAISON BACHE GABRIELSEN // DISTILLATIONS

LAUNCH OF FIRST AQUAVIT DEVELOPED IN COGNAC

Aquavit is the ultimate Scandinavian spirit. Based on its Norwegian roots and know-how acquired in cognac for more than 100 years, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen launches the first Aquavit developed in Cognac. This achievement is the result of a close collaboration between Bache-Gabrielsen (founded in 1905), and the micro-distillery Audemus Spirits (created in 2013 in Cognac), subtle alliance between tradition and modernity. This Aquavit comes from a blending of two spirits. The first one, in which several botanicals such as caraway, coriander or green anise have macerated, is distilled in a traditional Charentais still. The second one is distilled under vacuum and at low pressure, in a glass still, to extract in finesse the aromas from angelica.

CHÂTEAU MONTIFAUD // OSMOZ GIN

Brand Creation

Is there a cognac house more attached to the traditions than Château Montifaud?" Laurent Vallet and his wife Elodie, viticulturists and distillers at heart, yet created a surprise at Vinexpo with the launch of the distilled gin Osmoz, fully developed and distilled from grapes. For the two references of the range - Osmoz Classic and Osmoz Citrus - they blended the inevitable juniper to a selection of six characteristic aromas of their cognacs collection: linden, apple, licorice, apricot, almond and clove, a diversification as the Spirits Valley likes them.

Maison bache-gabrielsen // vsop triple cask

Rebranding & Launch

After having successfully repackaged its iconic Très Kors, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen decided to tackle its no less well-known VSOP. With the help of L'Assemblage, a study was first conducted on the concept, then the content and container have been redesigned. The result is this superb Triple Cask VSOP, whose specificity is to have a third ageing process in French oak barrels once the blending is made. This additional process brings to the VSOP a roundness and a unique greed. Available everywhere, especially in French retailing.

maison hardy // legend 1863

brand creation

Legends often start with love stories. Legend 1863 tells the story of an English gentleman, Anthony Hardy, who became French by passion for a region and a product, the cognac. Legend 1863 is Maison Hardy's homage to this entrepreneur, for whom the rooster, France’s emblem, was also a symbol of conquest. Exciting and complex project that has required creation of a specific bottle.

h. mounier // source vodka & gin

brand creation

Source Vodka takes its name from its spring water, a demineralized water from the chasm of Gensac-La-Pallue, in the heart of Grande Champagne in the Cognac region. Its perfect purity allows H. Mounier's Cellar Master to elaborate the "small waters" which, once blended with French wheat and wine fine, will give the quality of Source Vodka. This 100% French vodka is the confluence of water, wheat, grapes, the expertise of the Cellar Master and more than 500 years of history in Charente. Its little brother, Source Gin, is 100% French, 5 times distilled, with an impacting design with tree of life revisited in blue.
