“At Maison Ferrand, we nurture Cognac the same way one nurtures a child.” Alexandre Gabriel. 

Since 1630, in the heart of the vineyards of Cognac, 10 generations of Elie Ferrand’s have passed down not only their name but an abiding knowledge of the vine and of distillation. The current owner, Alexandre Gabriel has spent the last 28 years devoting his time to studying and perfecting techniques used by these men of character, for whom a great cognac was above all the fruit of patient work on a great terroir.

This research, and ancient facilities, has allowed the house to produce fine examples of Grande Champagne Cognacs, as well as re-creating styles of Cognac lost over time including a mixing Cognac so prized by Gerry Thomas from 1840 and experimental expressions aged in alternative wood barrels, as well as a sumptuous dry curacao that features on most top bars.

  • 1840 is an addition to the Cognac Ferrand range that has a bit of history. Based on the 3 star cognacs much favoured by the pioneering bartenders of the 19th century this has been designed to work perfectly in classic cocktails. It's also a bit punchier than the others in the range, bottled at 45% for a more concentrated flavour that should sing out in a mixed drink.
