Bache Gabrielsen Cognac Extra Serenite

After emigrating from Norway to France in pursuit of the woman who would eventually become his bride, Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen founded a distillery in the Cognac region of France in 1905. At the time, Thomas father was an executive at Holmestrands Samlag for Brdevinshandel, the largest alcohol producer in Norway, and Thomas brought with him the traditions and techniques inherited from his family lineage. Today, Maison Bache-Gabrielsen is one of the last remaining, family-run cognac houses in France (the distillery is run by Herv Bache-Gabrielsen, Thomas great-grandson).Srnit Extra is a Grande Champagne blended cognac crafted with traditional Ugni Blanc grapes, and a generous portion of the old and rare grape variety; Folle Blanche. This blend of eaux-de-vie contains 85 percent Ugni Blanc and 15 percent Folle Blanche, that are aged in Limousin casks, for approximately 30 years, some portions in the final blend, however, are as old as 50 years.The name Srnit was chosen by Bache Gabrielsen to reflect the peaceful mood that this unique cognac will introduce you to. The cognac starts with an elegant nose, a hint of mocha, and orange marmalade. Srnit has a round and velvety mouthfeel with a hint of coffee, vanilla and floral notes. The finish has quintessential, old, pure Grande Champagne notes; characteristically rich and long.Bache and Gabrielsens Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier is the man behind this blend of serenity, said to combine the true essences of traditional cognac. This release from Bache-Gabrielsen has won several awards, including a double gold medal, and the Best Extra-aged cognac award in the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
