History of Maison Villevert
It's necessary to reach far back in time to fully understand the history of Maison Villevert - to the year 1487, to be exact. It was in this year that Jehan Robicquet began distilling the liquid that today we know as Cognac. Indeed, this was a man who was one of the innovators of his time, selling and exporting his wares to the very first fans of Cognac.
Maison Villevert Today
Today the house is headed by Jean-Sebastian Robicquet - a man who takes his profession very seriously. He's learned his trade through hard graft, with such great names as Hennessy, and more recently, Hine Cognac, with whom he travelled the world as their export and marketing manager.
In 2009 he was glad to purchase the house that had been in his family since the 15th century, Maison Villevert. Little did he know that within a short six years, the house would become a true 'spirits empire', boasting such popular products as G'Vine Gine, Ciroc Vodka, and Excellia Tequilla.
