History of Paul Bocuse Cognac
Utilizing the might and knowledge of the cognac house of H Mounier, Paul Bocuse partnered with them in 1983 to create the cognac brand bearing his name. Aided by his team of sommeliers, Mr Bocuse took advantage of his keen palate – developed by his years as a top chef – and helped create the cognac blends that were to be sold under the Paul Bocuse brand.
At first, these were only offered to patrons of his chain of restaurants, but once the popularity grew, so did the brand and the countries to which it was exported.
Seen that Paul Bocuse cognac is associated with the H Mounier company and its long-standing cognac tradition, its origins can be traced back to the mid-1800s when Henri Mounier first joined forces with his cellar master and a neighboring vineyard owner to set up his recognized brand name.
