In 1828, Courvoisier and Gallois became known simply as Courvoisier, as the company focused on its true passion: producing cognac. They relocated the company from Paris to Jarnac, a small town on the banks of the Charente River in the heart of the Cognac region. It remains our home to this day. Courvoisier’s reputation grew so quickly that their warehouses in Bercy were honoured with a visit from the Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. Since then, he started giving a ration of cognac to troops in his artillery companies to lift their morale during the ongoing Napoleonic Wars.
Napoleon III, the nephew and heir to Napoleon Bonaparte, also personally requested Courvoisier, and made it official supplier to the Imperial Court. But not only in France, our cognac gracing the tables of the Royal Courts of Denmark, England and Sweden.
As you would expect from the brand that toasted the Grand Opening of the Eiffel Tower in 1889, Courvoisier is the perfect choice to celebrate your achievements.
Making Courvoisier is a delicate blend of art and science that combines old techniques with new technologies.
