Tiffon Bottle Catalogue (last updated June 5, 2024)

(115 bottles from 35cl and up, but still incomplete)

Tiffon was founded by two men, Médéric Tiffon and monsieur Roy, in 1875. The current owners are descendants of Sverre Braastad who married Edith Rousseau, granddaughter of Tiffon, in 1913. They introduced the Braastad brand in 1990, but Tiffon is also still produced in abundance.

The most commonly used emblem is that of a woman holding two shields, sometimes with the iconic building on Chai Île Madame in the background. This emblem is also used by Braastad.
Another emblem they have used is that of racehorses.

1900 grande champagne; 750ml 1906 I think this is a fraud. This necl label has numbers in an aberrant colour, the border is different from the border around the main label and there is no year on the main label. This is a three-star bottle to which a year was later pasted.
