René Briand was a well-known cognac brand in the middle of the last century. But a word of warning is in place, do not confuse René Briand with those other two famous names of the past: Georges Briand and Gaston Briand.

René Briand had his office in the city of Cognac on the Rue Marc Marchadier. Little is known about the man himself, besides that he took the initiative to start a Rotary Club in Cognac in the year 1931 of which he was president from 1932 to 1933. When exactly he started his cognac house, we do not know, but through all of his advertisements, we do know that he was very active.

Today his cognacs are not frequently seen, they range from humble three stars and fine champagne reserves to beautiful old vintages. Some of his bottles are called Domaine de Bonnefont. At the end of the 1990s, René Briand was taken over by the Italian distillery Franciacorta near Brescia. They kept the name René Briand, but only for the brandy they produce.
