A History of Excellence
Renault Cognac House is celebrating the 180th Anniversary.
At Renault, we have a long history of high-quality cognacs and we are maintaining the legacy of Renault’s style.
Jean Antonin Renault, a 25-year-old Charentais businessman created Renault Cognac in the town of Cognac in 1835. He enjoyed a reputation as an innovator who appreciated true quality. Renault was the first cognac maker to ship his cognac in bottles which guaranteed that the cognac kept its original taste and delicate flavours. Renault was a great voyager and he started to sell cognac during his travels to Scandinavia, Germany, Eastern Europe, Iceland, the Americas and Asia.
