Brugerolle Bottle Catalog (last updated June 6, 2020)

(154 bottles but still incomplete)

Brugerolle is one of the major brands of the CDG group, owned by Michel Coste. One other well known brand from this group is Meukow. But Brugerolle was established as an independant family company in Matha in 1847. Their logo is an eagle which can be seen on almost every bottle. In addition to the eagle they also use a picture of their distillery, which is a unique building with a very characteristic little tower on it.
Most of their bottles feature the signature of Léopold Brugerolle who called the company Distillerie de Matha Léopold Brugerolle.
