History of Cognac Ansac
The parent company, UniCognac, purchased the cognac house of Jules Gautret over half a century ago. Cognac Ansac is part of this collaboration, and has benefited from the might of the company and the fact that they have spent many years developing a powerful and effective distribution network. Thanks to this, Cognac Ansac has been and remains to this day available on all of the world’s continents.
Ansac Cognac Today
UniCognac built a new bottling and storage plant in 2007. It is located in the village of Saint Germain de Lusignan in the Charente-Maritime. Their distillery has 18 pot stills, each with a capacity of 25 hectolitres. They also have 10 aging cellars where the eaux-de-vie is gently matured in both Limousin and Tronçais oak barrels.
In the USA, Ansac Cognac is distributed by Heaven Hill Distilleries. In 2003 the bottles and packaging of the cognacs underwent a major overhaul. This was designed to add a contemporary flair and sophisticated note to a brand that is proving extremely popular all over North America.
