Prestige Beverage Group has added Davidoff Cognac to its portfolio of wine and spirits.
Prestige will be the exclusive importer in the U.S. for the Davidoff Cognac brand.
“We are excited to bring Davidoff Cognac to the U.S. and add their luxury spirits to our growing portfolio,” says Scott Schilling, GM and CMO of Prestige Beverage Group. “As Americans continue to have a thirst for brown spirits, we’re thrilled to add a premium option and bold touch of style in the world of cognac for consumers looking for a truly different experience.”
Davidoff Cognac was created by Zino Davidoff and his desire to have Cognac to pair with his cigars. He went to his friend Kilian Hennessy to help create such cognacs and in 1986 the Davidoff cognac line was born. Fast forward 25 years later to 2011, Thomas Hine & Co. took on the Davidoff cognac production. Hine has produced Cognac since 1763 and are the official Cognac for the Queen of England. The Hine house is located in the town of Jarnac, on the banks of the Charente River, in the heart of the Cognac region.
