History of Comandon



The house of Comandon was founded in 1821 by the very young and ambitious Pierre Comandon. It had been a tough time for the cognac trade, with trade barriers between Great Britain and France for many years due to Napoleon's warfare with the neighboring countries. But when the emperor finally fell, the region of Cognac felt a strong comeback and the cognac business got back on track. Pierre established his headquarters on the banks of the Charente river in Jarnac.



Later on, in 1851, he would become a local celebrity, as he was voted as the mayor of Jarnac. But he stayed true to his love for cognac and his company even while serving as a civil politician. In the second generation, it was Louis Comandon who took over the running of the cognac house. He, too, was an active political voice in the Charente and was partly responsible for the 1909 and 1936 decrees, which finally lead to the controlled "appellation" of Cognac.



Comandon Today



Today, Comandon is run by Franck Vigneron, president of worldwide operations. The cognac house has positioned itself cleverly as a contemporary business, with involvement in a music festival and the entertainment industry. The modern design of the homepage, held in black, white and red (with romantic piano music) manages to give cognac a look of classic chic. Not too old-fashioned, not too trendy. The logo with its palm tree emblem stands out for being quite exotic. All in all, Comandon has created a brand than makes consumers worldwide curious for their product.



News, Products, Awards and Old Labels



Comadon's product range is limited, they focus on VSOP, VS and an XO and on creating a niche for entertainment in the rather traditional cognac market.

In 2010, Comandon scored big time at the World Spirit Competition in San Francisco: Double Gold Medal for its XO, Gold Medal for its VSOP, Silver Medal for its VS. And Bronze Medal for its packaging.

One would not make this connection, but Comandon Cognac hosted a Playboy New Year's Party in Chicago in 2010! Interesting marriage of tastes...

Comandon also hosted events such as Tony Touch and Rick Ross in Barcelona, Fat Joe, Fabulous and Tony in Budapest. They seem to be approaching new markets in Spain and Hungary with such activities.
