The first of its kind, this innovative cognac is aged in authentic new American Tennessee Oak barrels for a minimum of six months. While remaining true to the ancestral methods of the blending of the liquid, this unique eau de vie incorporates both a traditional and new approach to cognac. It has distinct character from the American oak, with delicate tropical flavors of coconut and pineapple, which blends beautifully with the French oak flavors of vanilla, cocoa and nuts.
Cognac American Oak, the smart combination of American twist and French savoir-faire.

This Vintage Cognac is from Bouilleur de Cru René Gommet in the village of Echallat, west of Jarnac. The Ugni Blanc grapes used come exclusively from Monsieur Gommets estate, which is why we use the term Single Estate. Distilled in 1975 then stored in sealed oak casks from Limousin for almost 40 years. It will provide dry fruits aromas on the nose, a strong structure and a powerful taste.
Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen was the founder of the cognac house of Bache-Gabrielsen. The young Norwegian was just 22 when he acquired the cognac house of E. Dupuy, later known as Bache-Gabrielsen. To honour the founder, our Cellar Master has been down into the deepest recesses of the cellar and brought out the very best distillates, exclusively from Grande and Petite Champagne. This cognac has been maturing in small oak casks, developing the aromas of ageing, for several decades. Ripe citrus fruit, leather and cinnamon associations come pleasantly to the fore in bouquet and flavour alike. Thomas XO Prestige stands out as a rich, well-balanced cognac with a long finish. A cognac that rounds off a substantial meal to perfection.
