Braastad is one of the few family run cognac houses still in existence. Today, several family members continue the tradition. Sverres Braastad’s grandsons Richard, Antoine and Jan Braastad are responsible for running the company. Patrick Braastad, also one of Sverre’s grandsons, is part of our management team, and our young niece, Karine Cessart, runs the castle. All other Braastad employees have been with our cognac house for no less than 25 years; in fact, they’re almost family.
