Kings of the Mountains

An illustrious name

An ancient name with origins deep within the Carolingian period, the House of Polignac is mentioned in writing as early as 860. Its knightly history is interwoven with that of the Fortress of Polignac, whose emblematic silhouette perched high atop an unassailable platform of volcanic rock still dominates the surrounding peaks and valleys of Auvergne, offering a view so breathtaking that it once inspired King Francis I to give the Polignacs the nickname “kings of the mountains.”

French know-how

Cognac fit for a Prince

Born in 1918, Prince Hubert de Polignac was a man of culture and diplomacy as well as French Foreign Trade Counselor. An epicurean with a taste for adventure and an abiding passion for cognac, in 1947 he realized his dream of creating an eponymous brand that would embody and perpetuate his values and those of his lineage while further contributing to the glory of France and French savoir-faire.

The cognac that bears his name was quickly recognized for its excellence and soon earned the appreciation of the most notable figures of the time, including French president René Coty and King Frederick IX of Denmark, who granted a royal warrant to Cognac Prince Hubert de Polignac. Today, this exceptional cognac continues to delight connoisseurs and novices around the world with its quality, its character, and its spirit of nobility.
