Following our previous topics about the ABK6 Cognac house (read here), member the Vignobles & Signatures wine family group, we give you here oriental news about them. Thus, beyond already being renowned for their commitment to quality and craftsmanship, ABK6, founded by the Abécassis family, proposes a new immersion into artistic bottles. Indeed, this young Cognac house, located in the Grande Champagne region, premier cru of the Cognac appellation, has already collaborated with artists at the occasion of limited-edition cuvées, such as Julien Drevelle. This time, ABK6 wishes to celebrate the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, in order to mark the start of the Chinese lunar calendar and more precisely, symbolizing the entry into the Year of the Dragon. This millennial festivity is characterized by ancestral rituals, colorful parades, dazzling fireworks and an abundance of traditional foods and drinks, convivially shared by family and friends. Ideal to share a well-dressed Cognac nectar, whose importance doesn’t need anymore to be proven in Asia. By AL the dial turns to Dragon, already pictured in many engravings
