Courvoisier Cognac

Located on the banks of the Charente in Jarnac, Maison Courvoisier has been enhancing the potential of each eaux-de-vie since 1828 through the delicate art of distillation, aging and blending. Through the intensity of their character, our cognacs reveal the spirit, the riches and the heritage of the House.
Maison Courvoisier was founded in 1828 in Jarnac, in the heart of the Cognac region, by the charismatic Félix Courvoisier, with the idea of celebrating “la joie de vivre”.

At the end of his life, Félix Courvoisier passed on his Maison to two of his nephews, the Curlier brothers. With Jules and Félix Curlier from 1866, then the Simon family, the historical distributors of Courvoisier in the United Kingdom and owners from 1909, the reputation of Maison Courvoisier radiated beyond national borders. It was enjoyed first at the Imperial Court of Napoleon III as an Official Supplier, then on the tables of the Royal Courts of England, Denmark or even Sweden. Tasted at the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower or at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, Napoleon’s Cognac has also established itself in France since the Belle Époque as the emblem of French excellence. To date, Courvoisier is the only Cognac House to have received the Prestige Gold Medal from France – twice, in 1983 and in 2021.
Today, the most awarded Cognac House in the world* is redefining the standards of cognac, paying homage to its exceptional history, and celebrating the future by unveiling a new brand universe embodying the “joie de vivre”, a French precept by Excellency.
*Based on the top 20 spirits competitions since 2019.
