Odessa was one of the first in the Russian Empire to have access to such a noble drink as cognac. Since 1803, the city port handles cognacs produced by the famous homes in France. And at the beginning of the 20th century Russia had no brand-name products as popular as cognac “Shustov”.

In 1900 year the biggest Shustov’s victory was awarding their products the Grand Prix at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900. It was then that the Shustovs were honoured to write cognac on their products, and not a customary brandy.

Nowadays the spirit distilling shop of Odessa Cognac Factory is the biggest in Europe. It distils up to 3 million decalitres of cognac wine materials per distilling season (about 6 months) and yields up to 2 thousand decalitres of absolute alcohol per day. The OCF ageing rooms store more than 15,000 barrels of cognac spirits. It's a real gold reserve of cognac industry – the largest one in the country.

In 2013 Odessa Cognac Factory began to export the cognac spirits of its own distilling to France.
