About Us

We’re part of a new generation of Cognac lovers.

We’re brother and sister, Sophie and Max, and we’ll be handpicking your bottles for each one of your subscription deliveries. We’re passionate about Cognac, and want to dust off the cobwebs from the “tweed and cigar” image that has long been associated with this very fine spirit.

You’ll find us at the heart of the Charente region, where our family roots extend back three generations. Our grandparents acquired an agricultural property in the Charente region over half a century ago, and while our grandfather grew walnuts and apples, he also cultivated his own Cognac vineyards. As long as we can remember, our friends and neighbors have produced Cognac and shared their secrets with us.

Cognac is a multifaceted drink. While tradition and cultural heritage are closely linked to it, it also attracts international customers looking for a refined, unique experience. That’s what we try and bring to you with each unique subscription box.

We have been taught so much by experienced farmers, distillers, blenders and merchants. These people make the region so special, and each one has their own history to tell. Their traditions extend back many generations, and, like us, are deeply attached to this part of the world. Cognac is more than a drink here, it is a way of life.
