Remy Martin


About Us

Rémy Martin is a French firm that primarily produces and sells cognac. Founded in 1724 and based in the commune of Cognac, it is one of the biggest cognac producers and is also part of the Comité Colbert, an association "to promote the concept of luxury". The name Rémy Martin comes from the name of the company founder, born in 1695 near Rouillac in southwestern France. A winegrower by trade, in 1724 he created a trading house of cognac. After his death in 1773, his grandson, also named Rémy, pursued the business.

All Rémy Martin cognacs have the Cognac Fine Champagne appellation, meaning that they come exclusively from a blend of eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus, with at least 50% of Grande Champagne. Thanks to chalky soils, these eaux-de-vie have a great ageing potential and a particular aromatic intensity. Since 1948, under the leadership of André Renaud, Rémy Martin has made this exclusive choice. During the 1960s, l’Alliance Fine Champagne (the Fine Champagne Alliance) was created by André Hériard Dubreuil of the House of Rémy Martin. This cooperative brings together a thousand winegrowers from Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne and supplies almost 90% of the eaux-de-vie of the House. The Rémy Martin House markets more than 80% of the Fine Champagne cognacs.
