IBB Last Man Club

MK note: I am sure that taking a cup of kindness from our bottle will prove to be an event well worth living for. Surely he that does, or those that do, will have kind thoughts for each of us who does not have the pleasure of joining in that celebration of many well lived years.

Click the Pierre Ferrand logo above to learn about that fine vintner, premier cognac making, and our fine bottle of Pierre Ferrand Abel. One of the things you will learn there is that the twice distilled spirits inside our bottle, like the few other bottles of Abel, had aged in oak casks for an AVERAGE of FORTY-FIVE YEARS before being put inside the hand blown glass bottle and corked.

Because of that fact and the fact that the bottling of our particular bottle probably happened about 1999 or earlier, it is certain that some of the distilled grapes now inside our bottle were on the vine when we were treading "our" hills along the Imjin River.

An easy search on your favorite searcher will lead you to some (favorable) critiques of our bottle.

The image below (not quite true size) is of the lid to the wooden box which protects the good stuff from the things that peer and go "bump" in the night. MK.
