The House of Mumm was founded in 1827 by the three German brothers Gottlieb, Jacobus and Philipp Mumm. They named it after their father, the banker and wine merchant Peter Arnold Mumm, who came from Solingen and had been making and selling wine in Cologne since 1761. Peter Arnold Mumm had made great profits from wine speculation with the so-called "comet vintage" (after Halley's comet) of Johannisberg Castle. After the death of Gottlieb Mumm in 1852, the company was split into the two companies G. H. Mumm & Co. (after Gottlieb Mumm's son Georg Hermann) and Jules Mumm & Co. (after Jacobus Mumm's son Julius Engelbert). Jules Mumm used the fame of the red ribbon of the Legion of Honor in his company as a recognition mark for the Mumm brand; the "Cordon Rouge" brand was born. In 1910, the company G. H. Mumm & Co. acquired the rights to the Jules Mumm brand. Tirage cellar of G. H.
