History of Cognac Guy de Bersac
Domaine du Coquerel began its days under the title, Calvados Gilbert. It was started in 1937 by one René Gilbert, in the vineyards of the Manoir du Coquerel in the heart of Normandy. Here they concentrated mainly on the production of the famous apple eaux-de-vie, Calvados.
In 1971 the company was purchased by the leading German spirits group, Asbach & Co. This led to further diversification including the production of cognac and liqueurs. The company was, for a short period, part of the Guinness Group but was since sold on and is once again an independent French company.
