Courvoisier was the first of the four major Houses of Cognac to introduce a product with a declared age statement with the release of the Courvoisier Connoisseur Collection, consisting of Courvoisier 21 and Courvoisier 12
L'Essence de Courvoisier consists of more than 100 'eaux-de-vie' from the most exclusive crus in the cognac region; Grande Champagne and Borderies. The cognac is the combination of rare blends housed in the cellars dating back to the early 20th century
Legend has it that in 1811 Napoleon Bonaparte visited the Courvoisier warehouses run by Emmanuel Courvoisier and his associate Louis Gallois. Later, the French leader took several barrels of the cognac with him to St. Helena, and the English officers on his ship enjoyed it so much they nicknamed Courvoisier “The Cognac of Napoleon.”
Another Napoleon, Napoleon III, reinforced Courvoisier’s reputation as the finest cognac available by granting Courvoisier Cognac the title of "Official Supplier to the Imperial Court" in 1869.
Currently, Courvoisier is one of the leading cognac houses in the world and continues to excel in the spirits category with its renowned blends, including VS, VSOP, XO, Exclusif, Napoleon, 12 Year Old, 21 Year Old and L’Essence.
