St. Paul, Minn. – Prestige Beverage Group announces the addition of DAVIDOFF Cognac, one of the most iconic luxury brands in the world, to its award-winning portfolio of wine and spirits. Prestige will be the exclusive importer for the United States for the DAVIDOFF Cognac brand.
“We are excited to bring DAVIDOFF Cognac to the US and add their luxury spirits to our growing portfolio,” said Scott Schilling, General Manager 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 the perfect 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 been producing world class 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 region of Cognac. The DAVIDOFF cognac line of VS, VSOP and XO are all bottled at 40 percent A.B.V. and aged in French Limousin Oak Barrels.
