History of Prince Hubert de Polignac Cognac
The name Polignac has the most regal of histories. Countess Yolande de Polignac was a close friend of the legendary Marie Antoinette, who fell victim to the merciless blade of the guillotine in 1793. Other notable family members include Prince Jules de Polignac, who was Minister to King Charles X, as well as the 17th-century French ambassador to Rome and Poland – Cardinal de Polignac. The earliest registered person of the Polignac clan dates back to the year 680 AD, with Armand de Polignac the 1st.
In 1947, Prince Hubert de Polignac decided to make his name a Cognac brand. Rich in political and cultural knowledge, the Prince associates the H Mounier with the creation of what will be a worldwide success.
In 2020, Polignac Cognac resumes its princely independence. Under the leadership of Anthony Perera, the brand is preparing to mark a turning point in its history while continuing to embody its royal style.
