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.
