As the name suggests, the founders of Meukow cognac originated from Russia. In 1862 two brothers were sent over to France to supply the Tsar with cognac and decided to start their own cognac distillery. Today, Meukow, with the famous puma logo, ranks among the most well-known cognac brands in the world. Its qualities are strength, elegance, sensuality and exotism, the character traits of the puma. The distillery is housed in Matha in Charente Maritime.

History of Meukow
Sent over by Tsar Alexander II in 1862 in order to find the best cognac supplier for the Russian Royal Court, Auguste-Christophe (August) and Gustave (Karl) Meukow instead founded their own cognac house, A.C. MEUKOW & Co in 1862.
Today, Meukow belongs to the powerful CDG Group, one of the biggest commercial structures in the industry run by the Coste family, one of the most established families in cognac production.
CDG, founded in 1969 and today run by Philippe Coste, is the umbrella to a number of other smaller cognac houses such as Réau, Foucauld, Georges-Courant, Brugerolle, Rouyer-Guillet, or Favreau. Since the 1980s, Meukow has developed a strong international distribution network and is represented in all countries that import cognac. It is steadily gaining in the US and Asian markets.
