For over 200 years, Bisquit Cognac has been synonymous with luxury and joie-de-vivre – the joy of living. From being the official cognac of Air France Concorde to gracing the tables of royalty, Biscuit celebrates the finer things in life. With that spirit, Bisquit Cognac launched in South Africa with a lavish launch event held at the Crossley & Webb showroom in Cape Town. It was a wonderful evening with our host for the night Bob Mabena and guests including actor Bjorn Steinbach with his model girlfriend Alex McGregor as well as television personality, Danine Naidoo, comedian Siv Ngesi, cricketer Robin Peterson with his fiancée Portia Braaf.
