The top 10 best-selling Cognac and brandy brands

10. Old Kenigsberg

2016: 1.30m
2015: 1.40m
% change: -7.14%
Place last year: 10

Alliance 1892 Brandy Company-owned Old Kenigsberg might have held on to the number 10 spot in the list of best selling Cognacs and brandies, but it didn’t manage to consolidate the marginal volume gains it picked up in 2015. Shedding 100,000 cases over the course of the year, the brandy could now be feeling the delayed effect of geopolitical and economic woes in Russia, where the brand is popular. But Old Kenigsberg has rebounded before, climbing a significant 7.14% from 2012 to 2013 – so don’t write it off yet.

    Where is Hennessy in this list?

      Hi Dawn,
      As noted in the Martell entry on the 7th page, Hennessy, as part of a privately owned enterprise, declines to disclose its volume sales.

    Hennessy is not privately owned but is part of the public company LVMH.

  3. i have purchased enough hennessy, i could probably have 1/3 of its stock. love that stuff, but i think i have been getting screwed on the price. love it! i have, in the last year—except for 1 month—switched over to the french stuff—i think it is french! nevertheless, a bit disappointing news regarding hennessy. my uncle will miss his hennessy-cream drops, as we play bridge, then poker. oh, well!
