Shustov Cognac MuseumWe are pleased to offer you an acquaintance with one of the largest cognac houses in Ukraine - the Odessa Shustov Cognac Museum, where experienced specialists will dedicate you to the secret of creating a noble drink.
Cognac is a truly divine drink. For almost four hundred years its production has been covered with many secrets and secrets, which are not known to everyone. Jean-Paul Camus, representative of the famous French cognac dynasty, once said: "It's easy to make a wonderful cognac. All that you need for this is the great-grandfather, grandfather and father who devoted this to their whole life."
We invite you to make a trip to the only Shustov Cognac Museum in Ukraine. The museum exists since 2013. During this time It has become not only one of the most important sights of Odessa, but also a unique place that will completely immerse you in the secrets of making a noble drink.

History Shustov cognac

At the beginning of the 20th century, the empire did not have a better-known product on the market than the cognac "from Shustov"

• 1803 year
Odessa is one of the first in the Russian Empire to get access to such a noble drink as cognac. Since 1803, through the port of the city, supplies of the best brandies of the famous houses of France have begun.

• 1900
The biggest victory of the Shustovs was the awarding of their products in the 1900 Grand Prix at the World Exhibition in Paris. It was then that the Shustovs were honored to write the word cognac on their products, and not brandy, as was customary.

• 2002
At the Odessa Cognac Plant, a new shop of cognac spirit-smoking is starting to work - the most powerful in Europe. It is equipped with distillers of the French firm Prulho from the French province of Charente. It is Prulho that is considered to be the real trendsetter in the manufacture of cognac spirit-smoking equipment.

Today, the workshop of alcoholic smoking in the Odessa Cognac Factory is the largest in Europe. During the season of alcohol smoking (about 6 months), you can smoke up to 3 million decalitres of cognac wine materials and get up to 2 thousand deciliters of absolute alcohol per day. More than 15 thousand barrels of cognac spirits are stored in the OKZ holding departments. This is a real gold reserve of the cognac industry - the largest in the country.

In 2013, the Odessa Cognac Factory began exporting brandy spirits of its own fancy to France.
