Patrick Leger was born in 1969 in the Cognac region of southwest France, destined to become part of the spirits industry that bears the region's name. The son and grandson of wine growers, producers and distillers, his family has been involved in the cognac industry in various ways for generations.
Patrick's formal education culminates in a master's degree in business management. He works for French brand Alizé in 1990 where he sharpens his knowledge and experience in several categories including cognac, spirits and beer.
Almost 15 years later, he joins the Camus company as Master Blender, where he formulates his signature vision for Cognac and becomes General Manager in 2010. In 2015 he joins the Bord de Lambay Irish Company and in 2016 is appointed Chairman of the Management Committee of Chateau Loudenne.
Appointed Director of Operations of Marnier-Lapostolle Bisquit in 2020 by Campari Group, Patrick marks his triumphant return to the spirits world at the Maison Grand Marnier and Maison Bisquit & Dubouché.
In his role as Master Blender, Patrick oversees the global relaunch of Cognac Bisquit&Dubouché, as well as the entire Grand Marnier proposition, including Grand Marnier Grande Cuvées, Quintessence and Révélation - the ultimate expressions of Grand Marnier made from the rarest and oldest Cognac hors d'âge.
