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.

Prince Hubert de Polignac allowed the cognac house H Mounier to use his name for this illustrious brand. And in 1947 the name was officially registered as a trademark.

As part of H Mounier’s empire – the origins of Prince Hubert de Polignac Cognac can be traced back as far as 1848, when Henri Mounier formed a wholesale company along with cellar master Jean Salmon and vineyard owner Eugene Bellet. After a few years it was decided to bottle and market the cognac themselves, and in 1874 they began selling not only to France, but also to the overseas markets.

Cognac Prince Polignac Today

Prince Hubert de Polignac Coganc, also called “Prince Polignac”, is today the official Cognac at the Royal Court of Denmark thanks to the influence of the Russian Prince Alexis Louis de Wenden, who was a fan of the brand.

The brand has a distribution network that encircles the globe – and they recently had a complete overhaul of their product packaging and a new brand identity. Their VS, VSOP and XO bottles are easily recognised by the strong, regal colouring of grey, red and blue, and were designed specifically to bring to mind the noble heritage and history that lends its name to the brand.

All of Prince Hubert de Polignac cognacs are created from 100% Grande Champagne and the methods used are strictly traditional.  Along with parent company H Mounier, strict quality control procedures are in place to ensure that every bottle produced is worthy to be sold under the Polignac brand.

News, Products and Old Labels

The VSOP Reserve de Prince won gold medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in Great Britain, 2007 and silver medal in 2008 and 2009.

It also won Silver at the Saveurs Poitou-Charentes in 2007 and a gold medal mention ‘best in class’ at the International Wine & Spirit competition in 2006.

In spring 2011, Prince Polignac has released a brand new collection of their VS, VSOP and XO cognacs. On this occasion, Polignac also presented a new 3D website for connaisseurs to delve into the legend of Prince Polignac.

It is interesting to see how they vamped up the brand again, their product line really didn't look great before.. rather cheap. I do like the Prince Hubert Heritage bottle, and also the XO bottle. But the XO to VSOP.. VS bottles? Can't be a good idea to give a VS the same bottle form as the XO one.. just with a different colour label. Guys, get your marketing right. One thing I actually do like a lot is their Poker Trunk. Now that's a good idea.
