Founded by Alexandre Bisquit in 1819, the house of Bisquit, with its home at the Château de Lignères by the banks of the Charente River, had a long-standing family tradition until the house was sold to Pernod Ricard in 1966. Said to have been among the favorite cognacs of Winston Churchill and King George IV, it is popular in the Anglo-Saxon countries and hence was bought by the South African group Distell in 2009.

History of Bisquit
The heritage of Bisquit dates back to 1819, when Alexandre Bisquit founded the cognac house in the town of Jarnac, in the heart of the cognac region. His family had been active in distillation for generations, selling bottles since as far back as 1750, but had never taken the step of becoming independent with their own brand. With its 205 hectares of vineyards, it used to be one of the biggest vineyards in the Charente area, together with 64 alambics (pot stills) and cellars.
In 2009, Bisquit was bought by the South African group Distell from the former owner Pernod Ricard. In fact, when contacting Bisquit, we got through to the company head quarters in South Africa. Distell acquired a Chateau in the town center of Cognac to nest the brand and a complete site and cellars to shelter the cognacs.
In 2010, the Cognac house launched its products in South Africa.
