Meukow VS is characterised by its well-balanced blend between the roundness of its fruity notes and the delicacy of its woody nuances. Clear deep amber colour; on the nose are notes of caramel, dried apricots, vanilla and allspice; on the palate it is medium bodied and warm, with flavours of orange peel, caramel, vanilla and honey.
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. Managed under the influence of illustrious shareholders such as Henri Bouraud, who was Mayor of Cognac from 1849 to 1869, the company grew rapidly from the very beginning as evidenced by the prestigious events held around the world.
