Our family history is rooted in the land and its vines, beginning with the acquisition of the Moisans estate. To make characterful cognacs faithful to our family tradition, we believe that the terroir is important, the vineyard is essential, and the care given to our wines is absolutely crucial
In the 1960s, the founder Roland Bru created the Distillerie des Moisans and bought his first vines. He followed in the footsteps of his father-in-law, Georges Guimard who was from a large family in Angoulême. Like Bru in his time, Guimard traveled the world after the First World War.
Our aging cellars are semi-underground or built into the side of a hill. Inside are more than 1,300 casks containing 350 liters of our precious eau-de-vie, as well as around fifty Limousin oak barrels of 350 to 520 hectoliters each.
Our Cellar Master Christophe Gauville plays with different methods of distillation and maturation, blending several eaux-de-vie to create well-balanced compositions that become the identity, signature, and crown jewels of the Cognac MOISANS brand.
