glass of cognac
Meet one of the finest spirits in the world.

cognac is a type of brandy, a spirit made from fruit. In the case of cognac, the fruit is exclusively grapes grown in the Cognac region of France, which are known for their aromatic superiority.

The use of the name cognac is protected under French law. It is AOC, Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, and there are three main requirements to satisfy: First, it must be made from specific grape varieties, such as Ugni Blanc. Second, it must be twice distilled in copper pot stills. And third, it must be aged in oak barrels for at least two years.

highest-quality crus of Cognac

Thanks to these requirements, cognac captures the original aromatic and fruity aromas of grapes to create a dense and rich spirit of the highest quality.

As AOC, the Cognac region is divided into six growing regions, called crus. At Rémy Martin, our eaux-de-vie (the distillate of the still wines) come exclusively from the Premier Cru, Grande Champagne, and from the Petite Champagne cru, terroirs that yield eaux-de-vie with exceptional aging potential. Only if a cognac is made exclusively from eaux-de-vie from the Grande and Petite Champagne, of which at least half come from the Grande Champagne, can it be called a Fine Champagne cognac.

Our distillation methods remain traditional to this day. We work only with small copper stills, where the still wine is distilled with its lees (deposits of yeast) to capture all of its rich, fruity, and complex aromas. The distillation is repeated a second time to retain only the most essential and exceptional flavors. Through a careful selection of only the best eaux-de-vie and a lengthy aging process, Rémy Martin is able to produce exceptionally aromatic and intense cognacs.

A single bottle of cognac may contain hundreds of different eaux-de-vie, harvested, distilled, and aged in barrels over different periods of time. It requires the unique expertise of the Cellar Master to blend this vast palette into Rémy Martin cognacs with their unparalleled signature style: harmonious, rich, and long on the palate.
