About the winery
Meukow was created in the 19th century by two brothers from Silesia, Auguste-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, who were sent by Czar Alexander II to France in order to supply the Russian court with Eaux-de-vie. After many visits, they decided to set up a business in Cognac and A-C Meukow was founded on 1st August 1862. In 1979, Meukow became part of the independent family-run business “Compagnie de Guyenne”, founded by Michel Coste in 1969, the commercial structure of which enabled Meukow to develop and expand their range. Determined to reinforce the impact of the Meukow brand, Michel Coste searched for a strong symbol that would evoke the quality of their cognacs whilst distinguishing them from other brands. In 1993, he created what was to become the brand’s icon: “Le Félin”, a bottle decorated with a panther, a superb creature that symbolises strength, elegance and suppleness, the intrinsic qualities of Meukow cognacs.
