History of Monnet Cognac

The house came into being in the year 1838, when an association of local vineyard owners created a new cognac alliance named the SOCIETE DES PROPRIETAIRES VINICOLES DE COGNAC.  In 1897, the house took the name of it's then president, Jean Gabrielle Monnet.

After the First World War, Jean Gabrielle handed control of the house over to his son, Jean Monnet. If that name seems familiar then it should - because Jean is also known as Pere de l'Europe - or The Father of Europe.

Jean divided his time between his political career and the house of Monnet, running the house full time between the two World Wars.

Monnet Cognac today

Today the house of Monnet is dedicated to their quest of producing elegant, refined cognacs.  The eaux-de-vie used in their blends come mainly from the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois, and Borders terrors of the Cognac region.

The house had established a 'quality charter' with its main suppliers of eaux-de-vie, of whom are a limited number, encouraging close and long lasting relationships.
