An intricate, miniature paper diorama combining paper architecture and light projection to trace the history of Courvoisier and bring our alchemy to life.
Emmanuel Courvoisier, our founder, and the mayor of Bercy, Louis Gallois' reputation grew quickly amongst brandy connoisseurs, so much so that their warehouses in Bercy were honoured with a visit from the Emperor himself, Napoleon Bonaparte.
Since then, having moved to Jarnac, we've nurtured close relationships with over 1000 wine growers, who harvest our grapes in October when they're at their ripest and juiciest.
Our coopers use only the heartwood and sapwood for Courvoisier barrels, expertly splitting the oak into long strips before sawing by eye into exact stave lengths.
We insist on using traditional 25 hectolitre Alambic Charentais copper pot stills, and we also double distil to capture the aromatic soul of our fermented wine.
Cognac is a living, breathing product and we take great care during the ageing process to safeguard the natural interaction of eaux-de-vie and oak that gives our cognac its rich colour and complex bouquet.
It's the job of Patrice Pinet, our expert Master Blender, to create a harmonious blend year after year: a true lifetime's work of passion and artistry.
For over two centuries, our cognac alchemy has been a fascination and enduring passion; a magical fusion of art and science, where age-old traditions combine with unique innovations to produce a range of cognacs renowned and enjoyed the world over.
