distilleriedupeyratorganiccognacAC The Distillerie du Peyrat is located in a quaint village of the same name situated on the “Via Agrippa” which linked Lyon and the Atlantic coast during the ancient Roman era. Our Cognacs are born by a small river in the gentle Charente countryside, 10 km from the city of Cognac. Before becoming Cognac, our wines are submitted to a trial by fire and copper imposed by the propitious alchemy of the Charente pot still. Distillation is an accomplishment, an essential task confided only to specialists; insofar as the Distillerie du Peyrat is concerned, its secrets remain closely guarded since 1725 when an ancestor of our family set up shop as a “marchand brûleur”.

The Cognacs of our brand share the commonality to have been crafted in our pot stills with our know-how, a signature of authenticity as it were. Moreover, an undertaking quite rare, the Distillerie du Peyrat exclusively produces organic Cognacs, attesting to our respect for the environment and the intense expression of our “terroir”. After the fire, the test of time, and only time, hand in hand with oak barrels, can perfect the work of the pot stills. The production of fine Cognac is truly a question of patience, but the Distillerie du Peyrat knows how to wait…
