Conjure Cognac, a collaboration between the house of Birkedal Hartmann and superstar Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges has seen an exceptional first year of trading.  This award winning cognac now sees the appointment of two new co-CEO’s with the aim of further expanding the brand over the next two years.

Kim Birkedal Hartmann and Jeff Dixon replace Hans Holst, Paul-Andre Petersen, Dr Harry Kohlmann and Chris Mehringer.

Conjure Cognac was rolled out to an ambitious 40 markets during year one and gained much recognition in the industry.  The blend won gold medals in both the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Wine and Spirits Wholesaler of America 2011 Competition.  It also won the Beverage Information Rising Star Award and had some notable reviews in various trade magazines.

In the 12 months ending 31 March 2011, the brand sold over 100,000 cases.

Park Street Imports, of whom previous CEO’s Kohlmann and Mehringer are part of, will remain investors in the company and carry on with the role of being the exclusive importer of Conjure into the USA.
