Castle Brands Inc. and A. de Fussigny Cognac announced last week that they have agreed on an exlusive distribution deal for the U.S. market. Like many Cognac trading houses and producers, A. de Fussigny does not have their own US distribution arm, but partners with a company.
Renowned for its quality, A. de. Fussigny was founded in 1814 and is the only Cognac producer that has an active production facility (a distillery) in the heart of the town of Cognac. Fussigny produces eaux-de-vie which come from the Fine Champagne (Grande and Petite Champagne) area. A. de Fussigny also offers a range of single estate and vintage Cognacs. The packaging of the company’s products differ from other products.
John Glover (CEO of Castle Brands) said,
“We are very excited to be working with the A. de Fussigny organization and are proud to be the exclusive distributor of their fine products. We believe the time is right and there is market demand for high quality and innovative cognacs. With the help of Castle Brands’ wide-ranging and sophisticated sales and distribution network, Fussigny is well positioned to capitalize on these attractive market opportunities and expand its U.S. presence.”
Castle Brands Inc. is a marketer of premium alcohol brands (see also Maxxium), including brands such as Boru Vodka, Gosling’s Rum, Pallini, Limoncello, Raspicello and Peachcello, Knappogue Castle Whiskey, Clontarf Irish Whiskey, Jefferson’sTM, Jefferson’s Presidential Select and Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon, Betts & Scholl wines, Celtic Crossing Liqueur, Brady’s Irish Cream and Tierras tequila.
And Jean-Dominique Andreu, President of A. de Fussigny, adds, “We are excited to re-introduce A. de Fussigny cognac to the U.S. and we look forward to working closely with the Castle Brands team. Castle Brands, with its strong sales and marketing organization in the U.S. market and its position in the high-end spirits segment, is the perfect home for A. de Fussigny in the U.S.”
