Founded in 1828, the House of Planat chose the Griffin, a mysterious and mythological creature, as its emblem to symbolize dynamism and grandeur, two ideas dear to Abel Planat, the founder. In 1858, Oscar, Abel's son, took over the family business and developed the company's growth in all markets around the world.
Passionate, visionary, humanists, they have engraved in marble the spirit of the Planat brand!
The Planat, Pionneau and Camus families have succeeded each other at the head of this Great House and have worked for the renown and influence of the Planat brand for almost two centuries. The brand was sold in 2018 to the Soerlie family (Norway) and the Nau family (France) with the aim of reviving the original identity of the Planat house, a family-owned and independent house.
Planat cognacs are produced from wines and eaux-de-vie sourced from the four main crus of the cognac territory; Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois and Bons Bois. For many years, a privileged relationship with organic wine growers has been established in order to develop this more environmentally friendly culture and to offer unique products.
Planat is one of the first operators in organic agriculture in the Cognac region. Its environmental commitments are at the heart of the company's project.
