Following buoyant sales and expansion over the past few years, the Cognac brand, Bache Gabrielsen, has now received the necessary permission to create their new home in the village of Louzac-Saint-André.


An abandoned distillery from the 1950s will provide storage cellars, a chai, bottling plant, aging cellars, offices and a 500m3 fire fighter station all in a single location.  The trading house is investing 6 million euros into the project, and the new site will offer a wonderful opportunity for expansion, as well as the likelihood of opportunities for future employment.

Another reason for the move is the increased regulations regarding the creation and storages of eaux-de-vie.  This new plant will allow Bache-Gabrielsen to conform, as well as to expand their rate of production.  The work is scheduled to be completed by the year 2104.
