About Fanny Fougerat Cognac
The house of Fanny Fougerat is named after its entrepreneurial creator, a young woman who comes from a long line of winemakers and distillers of Cognac. The brand only came into being a few years ago, with the first bottling of a Cognac to be sold under the Fanny Fougerat brand name being launched in November of 2013. However, the traditions and knowledge of this wine making family stretch back over four generations, during which time they sold their eaux-de-vie to the larger Cognac houses.
Fanny Fougerat Cognac is wonderfully 21st century, yet combined with the passion and knowledge of a truly traditional Cognac family. The resulting artisan products are fresh, vibrant, and of exceptional quality.
