Ysatis and Pieter founded the Malternative label just before the Corona pandemic in March 2020.It all started following several trips to Cognac between 2015 and 2020, where the pair fell in love with the authenticity, history, hospitality and gastronomy of the Cognac region. As lovers of whisky, they slowly began to make the switch to Cognac - an esteemed "malternative".
Working with different brands, Ysatis and Pieter personally visit the Cognac producers to form good relationships in order to make their own selections to be sold under their brand name. The bottles are completed in France, and the labels are personalized with a special mention of the producer.
