This is a Cognac house that combine both modernity and tradition; drawing upon centuries of savoir-faire to safeguard their innovative spirits and longevity. Their roots date back to the heart of the Cognac region and to the very history of France itself. In 1862, the son Gaston Tessendier acquired the Buisson estate and other parts of land, which soon became the Distillerie Tessendier estate.
Gaston was the first to learn the secrets of the vines, with his son following in his footsteps. Over the years they learnt about ageing the Cognacs and distillation, and the third generation of Tessendiers were really the first to master the art of blending Cognac effortlessly.
Now in the hands of the fourth generation, Jerome and Lillian, they continue to innovate and drive forth a vision that is unique, driven by emotions with each of their eaux-de-vie, and create a series of multifaceted brands under the overarching label of Distillerie Tessendier such as Cognac Park, Cognac Campagnère, Cognac Grand Breuil and the latest Saison Rum, which sees the Tessendier brothers applying their savoir-faire to the art of rum.
