The company

A family culture
from Reims

When it was created in 1797, Charbonneaux used to make soap, before gradually shifting towards the denaturation of alcohol.

In the 1950’s, after six generations have succeeded one another, the company provided alcohol to the vinegar-makers.

In 1962, Maurice Brabant, an alcohol distiller, took ownership of the company. This is how the actual Charbonneaux-Brabant company was founded: the one and only family industry that guarantees the mustard and vinegar expertise of the Champagne region.

Grands Crus

Charbonneaux Brabant has developed its expertise in 7 production sites in France and 2 in Italy. The company is present on the main distribution channels, BtoB, mass distribution, hotel, catering, but also in more than 80 countries, all over the world.

Sustainable development is at the centre of attention of the company and we strive to promote a constant politic of improvement as well as a respectful behaviour towards the human person and the planet.

Italian expertise

Giovanna Pavarotti

The balsamic vinegar of Modena IGP Giovanna Pavarotti is produced without the addition of caramel, allowing it to reveal its natural syrupy texture and its authentic dark brown color. The intensity of the fruity aromas and the generosity of the flavors it offers comes from the sweetness of the Italian grape varieties, but also from the acidity of the wine vinegar. A combination that promises a sweet and sour taste as balanced as it is gourmet.
