Meukow Icone 150th Anniversary Cognac
Meukow Icone is the special and unique blend created in 2012 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Meukow House, which can trace its origins to 1862. Striking a blissful balance between elegance and roundness, it’s a Cognac delight perfect for special occasions.
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. Today Meukow is distributed in more than 80 countries and is fronted by Philippe Coste, son of Michel, supported by his two sisters, Marie-Laure Brugerolle and Céline Viard who manages the business.
