The Monnet Cognac house was founded in 1838 by a small group of vineyard owners calling themselves the “Company of Vineyard Owners of Cognac.” In 1897, the company took the name of its President, Jean-Gabriel Monnet and took the salamander as their emblem The mythically fire-resistant salamander was the crest of the King Francois I, the first French monarch of the Renaissance, who was born in Cognac. It also symbolizes how Monnet stills are heated by open flames. While Monnet cognac is aging in oak barrels, regulations state that the cellarmaster cannot even enter the room in order preserve the purity and integrity of Monnet. If the cellarmaster wants to check the cognac, a representative of the French National Cognac Bureau has to unlock the door for them. Monnet VS has a rich golden color.
