History of Cognac Chabasse
1787 saw the birth of the founder of Cognac Chabasse. Jean-Baptiste dedicated his life to the planting of vines and creation of eaux-de-vie and soon became known for the quality of cognacs his house produced. But not only did he concentrate on the here and now, but his vision was for the family members who would take over long after he was dead. Because of this vision, he ensured that his vines were planted in the best positions and he did his utmost to ensure that he left a legacy for his children and grandchildren to carry on.
In the early 1900s, the house was taken over by Louis Olivier Chabasse. He combined his love of cognac with his love of travel, introducing the cognacs of the house of Chabasse to all continents of the globe. It was on his overseas journeys that he met Elizabeth Bowen, who managed a farm in the area of Madras in India. For her, Louis Olivier created a special cognac brand, which still bears her name today: Cognac Bowen.
