Cognac is a Geographical Indication located on France’s Atlantic Coast, 75 miles north of Bordeaux. The Cognac region and its resulting spirit—produced from wine—both take their name from the namesake town at its center. Defined by its maritime climate, clay and chalky soils and the Charente River crossing the length of the region, Cognac’s history as a spirit-producing region dates back to the 16th century, though its wines had achieved notoriety three centuries before.

Created in 1946, the mission statement of the BNIC is to develop Cognac, representing and defending mutual professional interests of both growers and merchants. The BNIC is responsible for organizing the production of Cognac and respond to market needs; informing about, protecting and promoting the Cognac appellation; facilitating access to markets; furthering relations between merchants and winegrowers; recording sales and exports; administering the aging control system; issuing authentication certificates for exports; and acting as the official body that and safeguards the Cognac appellation. It is made up of 100 staff members. In 1909, the Cognac area of production was delimited, and in 1936 it became an AOC. In 1989, the Cognac appellation was recognized as a Geographical Indication by the European Union.
