A bit about the background and history of the company and family of Braastad:

Sverre Braastad (1879 – 1979) arrived 1898 in Charente, coming from Norway. The man started working in a Cognac trading house Tiffon in Jarnac. Now, Sverre fell in love with Edith Rousseau, the daughter of the founder of that certain house of Tiffon. Médéric Rousseau founded Tiffon in 1875. They married  in 1913;  later on Sverre took over the business of Tiffon.

Still a familiy business: Sverre Braastad’s children and grandchildren today manage the company. Sverre died in 1979 at the Chateau de Triac which is family owned. The Château de Triac is the home of Tiffon and Braastad. It is situated in the cru Petite Champagne in the Cognac area.

The family does everything inhouse, from growing the grapes to botteling. A real tradition.

    I do so love this certain tiffon. But is so difficult to find or ship in the U.S. New laws, maybe it would best to cross country drive for two or three cases.Do you suggest a state in the midwest?
