Bache Gabrielsen Tre Kors VS Cognac
20cl / 40%
Tre Kors means 'three crosses' in Norwegian and the name was carefully chosen – when Norway banned distilled spirits in 1916, Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, who was Norweigan by birth, added the crosses to symbolise the fight against disease. This was because distilled spirits could still be sold in pharmacies for medicinal purposes, and in no time at all Tre Kors Cognac became the most-prescribed remedy for illness!
This VS Cognac, still a best-seller in Norway, is made from a blend of 25% Grande and Petite Champagne and 75% Fins Bois eaux-de-vie. It is vibrant, rounded and fruity, with a smooth finish.
