Delegate Profile

Alexandre Gabriel


Alexandre Gabriel was born and raised in France, on a farm in southern Burgundy, where his grandfather taught him how to make wine and distill spirits. In 1989, Alexandre Gabriel came upon an ancient Cognac house and built it into what is known today as Maison Ferrand, in the heart of the Grande Champagne district of Cognac.  Through his passion and vision, Alexandre turned the small Cognac House into one of the greatest specialist of artisanal spirits today, producing an award-winning portfolio of sought after brands – Pierre Ferrand Cognac, Citadelle Gin, Plantation Rum, Mathilde Liqueurs. Of the spirits he produces, Alexandre says he thinks of them as “aromatic sculptures” or “gastronomic paintings” and to him they are not merely products but the perfect embodiment of history, emotions and experience. Alexandre recently purchased the famed West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados which also made a one third owner of National Jamaican Rum Company with Monymusk Distillery and the famed Long Pond Distillery.
