The company

A family culture
from Reims

Founded in 1797, the company Charbonneaux originally manufactured soap before gradually shifting towards alcohol denaturation.

By the 1950s, six generations later, the company was supplying alcohol to vinegar makers.

In 1962, the company was sold to alcohol distiller Maurice Brabant, giving rise to the current Charbonneaux-Brabant company. This unique family-owned business guarantees the traditional vinegar and mustard-making expertise of the Champagne region.

Grands Crus

Charbonneaux-Brabant has expanded to 9 production sites in France and 2 in Italy. The company is present in major distribution channels, including B2B, retail, hospitality, and food service, as well as internationally in over 80 countries.

With sustainability at the core of the company’s focus, we strive to promote a policy of continuous improvement and respectful conduct towards both people and the planet.
