Maison Ferrand are one of the world’s premier producers of Cognac and an architect of the historical spirits movement. The mission of its founder and master blender Alexandre Gabriel, is to honor the history and techniques of 10 generations of the Ferrand families Cognac making. With an independent mindset and steeped in four hundred years of history, Alexandre and his team have produced some incredibly creative Cognacs within the bounds of the Cognac traditions and rules.
The story of all Ferrand Cognacs begin in the heart of the Grande Champagne region known as the ‘premier cru de Cognac,’ where the harsh chalk and limestone terroir produce grapes that are full and bursting with life. Segonzac, the home of 10 generations of Elie Ferrand’s, lies in the middle of Grande Champagne, with vines stretching as far as the eye can see. Centuries on, the team still carefully tend to the vines with the same knowhow and most importantly work with the land to create a virtuous relationship between Cognac making and nature.
