Notes for editors

Courvoisier Château

The origin of Courvoisier history goes back to the beginning of the 19th century with Emmanuel Courvoisier and his associate, Louis Gallois, running a wine and spirit merchant company, in the Parisian suburb of Bercy. In 1811, Napoleon visited the warehouses in Bercy and legend has it that he later took several barrels of cognac with him to St Helena. This was a much appreciated treat for the English officers on the ship, who named it "The Cognac of Napoleon".

Felix Courvoisier and Jules Gallois, the sons of Emmanuel and Louis respectively, had an intuitive understanding that their customers were after an ever-greater quality spirit. With that in mind, they decided to take a bold change of direction for their business. They wanted more control over the quality of the product they had built their reputation on, so in 1928 moved their headquarters from Paris to the town of Jarnac, in the heart of the Cognac region. It remains the home of Courvoisier to this day.
