    Established the House of Courvoisier (1808)
    Distiller of 'The Cognac of Napoléon'
    Business partner was Louis Gallois
    Allied Lyons took over the Courvoisier brand in 1986, which includes: Courvoisier V.S., V.S.O.P., Napoléon, X.O. Imperial, Initiale Extra and Extra 7
    When Napoléon Bonaparte was sent into exile, Courvoisier went on the ship (HMS Northumberland) with him, bringing hundreds of bottles of his cognac.
    His son, Felix, died without an heir to the company, so it went to Felix's nephews.
    Limited edition bottles of L'Esprit de Courvoisier with aged cognac are being sold for more than $6,000 per bottle. Most people prefer spending their money on a normal bottle of Courvoisier Cognac VS for $25.
    Courvoisier is hard to pronounce (ku-vos-ie-ay).
    Napoléon III honored him by naming Courvoisier as the 'official supplier to the Imperial Court.'
    Busta Rhymes loves his product so much that he wrote and released the song 'Pass the Courvoisier.'
    Courvoisier XO Imperial was given top honors at the 1994 Wine & Spirits competition as the 'Best Cognac in the World.'
