The Meukow House was founded in the 19th century. In 1850, Auguste-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, two brothers from Silesia, were sent to France by Tsar Alexander II of Russia with orders to secure the supply of cognac for the Court. After several voyages, they decided to set up a commercial office in the town of Cognac and founded the A.C. MEUKOW & Co. House on 1 August 1862.
The perfect balance between power and suppleness that is characteristic of Meukow Cognacs is the result of the dedication of the Cellar Master. Anne Sarteaux, Cellar Master at Maison Meukow since 2007, continues the ancestral traditions and expertise that has been transmitted from generation to generation.
The expertise and expression of the Cellar Master are fully revealed at the time of blending. This delicate art requires both experience and intuition, and consists of blending different eaux-de-vie of different ages in order to obtain a harmonious and aromatic nectar.
To guarantee the inimitable Meukow style, Anne Sarteaux mainly uses Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Cognacs, which are notable for the rich complexity of their floral notes, as well as Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Borderies, which provide fruity aromas and woody qualities that will bring a perfect balance to the blend.
