Welcome to Malaysia, Grazia Di Franco!

Grazia Di Franco, Maison Ferrand's new Southeast Brand Ambassador, popped by to introduce herself and the range of Maison Ferrand products available in Malaysia. 

Based in Singapore, Grazia brings with her a diverse background and a wealth of experience. She was crowned the Strega Liquor Modern Mixing Champion in 2016. 

She's worked with PS40 Sydney and took on the role of Creative Director at Bartolo Wine Room, an Italian cocktail bar and restaurant. Grazia also served as the Brand Ambassador for Mancino Vermouth and Rinomato Aperitivo prior to this role.

Maison Ferrand was founded in 1989 by Alexandre Gabriel, who is the owner and master blender, and is headquartered in the 18th century Chateau de Bonbonnet. Maison Ferrand produces Ferrand cognacs, Plantation Rum, and Citadelle Gin.

Ferrand Cognac is a 100% Grande Champagne Cognac with roots in the region stretching back over four centuries and ten generations.

Citadelle Gin, created in 1996, spearheading the movement for artisanal French gins. Made on-site at a Chateau de Bonbonne, Citadelle Gin is a product of 19 different botanicals, and it is known to be the only gin that's distilled in cognac pot stills. 

Plantation Rum, introduced in 1999, features a double ageing process and is distilled in the West Indies Rum Distillery, Barbados. After ageing in Bourbon casks for several years, it is then shipped to Chateau de Bonbonne, where the second maturation process takes place in Ferrand French oak casks.
