Bisquit, the French heritage cognac House steeped in 200 years of history, announces that it has been awarded four medals at the 2013 International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC). For the fifth year in a row, Bisquit has won an IWSC medal for each of its cognacs – the only House to do so. Announced on July 24, 2013, Bisquit was awarded silver medals for Bisquit V.S. Classique, Bisquit V.S.O.P., Bisquit Prestige and Bisquit X.O. Founded in 1969, the IWSC is widely considered to be the most prestigious independent competition of its type in the world.

Bisquit has been awarded numerous awards for the quality of its cognacs throughout its history. Last year at the 2012 International Wine and Spirit Competition, Bisquit won gold medals for Bisquit V.S.O.P. and Bisquit Prestige, and silver medals for Bisquit V.S. Classique and Bisquit X.O.

"It is an honour for Bisquit to again receive such prestigious recognition from the IWSC, particularly in a year where we are celebrating the modern renaissance of our cognac House," said Vincent Chappe, President of the House of Bisquit Cognac. "We pride ourselves on crafting cognacs of refined detail for connoisseurs – those who believe in taking extra time for pleasure. We thank the IWSC for having taken the time to recognise the superior quality of Bisquit's smooth and aromatic cognacs."

"This recognition by the IWSC honours the time that we take to craft Bisquit Cognac. Our uniquely longer distillation creates a more pleasurable, distinctive smoothness, aroma and bouquet, and we are pleased to share this with cognac connoisseurs in France and around the world," said Denis Lahouratate, Maître de Chai (cellar master) of the House of Bisquit Cognac.
