History of the federation

Founded : 1973

Founded in 1973, the French Brandy Federation stands out with its integrated and dynamic network, comprising 34 key players committed to spanning from production to distribution.

It represents 90% of the Brandy volumes produced on French soil, highlighting its scale and significance in the industry.

At the heart of this sector, the **bottlers and distributors**, including renowned houses such as Rémy-Cointreau, La Martiniquaise-Bardinet, Grands Chais de France, William Grant & Sons, Camus, and Louis Royer, play a pivotal role.

These prestigious entities bridge the traditional expertise of producers with the tastes of consumers worldwide.

Supported by producers and wholesale traders such as Lucien Bernard, UFAB, Distillerie de la Tour, Douence, Staub, and Tessendier, these merchants benefit from a steady supply of superior quality Brandy, contributing to the richness and diversity of the market offering. The foundation of this structure is reinforced by a broad network of distilleries, which dot the French viticultural landscape.

This network is coordinated by organizations like the National Federation of Vineyard Cooperative Distilleries (FNDCV) and the National Union of Wine Distilleries (UNDV), ensuring a continuous and varied production, meeting the quality and excellence standards associated with French Brandy.
