Sidney Frank Founder
American businessman and philanthropist Sidney Frank is best known for his work in spirits imports. The owner and founder of the Sidney Frank Importing Company, he rose to fame with his game-changing relaunch of an obscure German digestive. This set the stage for his life’s most recognized work, the founding of a brand-new vodka from one of the most unexpected places in the world, France – a country which he famously said, “has the best of everything.”
François Thibault Maitre de Chai
Francois was the son of a winegrower and grew up in the heart of Cognac. In 1982, he joined the respected cognac house of H. Mounier as the head of its wine production department, and went on to receive formal instruction in the production of spirits and liqueurs, to become a cognac Maitre de Chai; a title that requires a seven year apprenticeship. But shortly after he received the title, Sidney Frank gave him his biggest challenge yet – to create a vodka with character and taste. To do this, Francois demanded three things:
One. – 100% control over the process from field to bottle.
Two. – Freedom to select and source the best ingredients, regardless of cost.
Three. – Develop a custom-calibrated production process.
