ABK6 Cognac joins McKinley Vintners

ABK6 Cognac from Domaines Francis Abécassis, a single estate Cognac aimed at a “new generation” of Cognac drinkers, has joined McKinley Vintners’ UK portfolio.

Launched in 2005, ABK6 is owned and run by father daughter team of Francis and Elodie Abécassis of Domaines Francis Abécassis and is described as a “modern” Cognac to appeal to a new generation of drinkers.

Each batch is blended from a selection of very old eaux-de-vies produced from the fruit of Domaines Francis Abécassis, grown across Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois.

”The quality and individuality of the Cognacs produced by Francis and Elodie are truly remarkable and I can’t wait to show them to our customers alongside our other great spirits”, said Peter McKinley.

ABK6 (pronounced A-be-ca-sis) is taken from the shorthand the family have always used to write their surname, Abécassis.

Elodie Abécassis, director of Domaines Francis Abécassis, said: “We have been looking for a suitable UK partner for some time and are delighted to be working with the McKinley Vintners team. This is a very exciting development in the story of ABK6 Cognac.”

ABK6 Cognacs are now available from McKinley Vintners, and joins a range that includes Calvados Christian Drouin, Bristol Classic Rums, Snow Queen Vodka, Bodegas Tradicion Sherries and Quinta do Tedo Ports.

The ABK6 range includes VS, VSOP, XO Family Réserve, Vintage 1985, Extra, Limited Edition ‘ICE’ and its new Honey Cognac Liqueur “ABK6 Honey”.
