Introduction

Rémy Martin

Three centuries of exceptional products

The story of Rémy Martin is that of the pursuit of a single ambition – to capture the very essence of cognac. Since 1724, the House of Rémy Martin has been led by men and women of great talent, who have successfully turned a small area of France into the stronghold of one of the finest cognacs in the world: Fine Champagne Cognac, an iconic blend of eaux-de-vie from the vineyards of Grande and Petite Champagne.

Rémy Martin uses only fruit from the most revered vineyards, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, whose terroirs provide ideal conditions to ripen the grapes to perfection. Once distilled, our eaux-de-vie boast a rich and harmonious palette of aromas. More than any others, they are particularly suited to ageing. They form the heart of the Rémy Martin cognac collection, which has been perfected for more than three centuries.

Still a visionary today, the House of Rémy Martin has shaped a rich heritage focused on the future.
