Products from Rémy Martin
The name Remy Martin goes back to the winegrower Remy Martin, who founded the house in 1724, based in Cognac. Because of the admirable quality, King Louis the 15th granted him the rare right to plant new vines in 1783. At the beginning of the 19th century, the cognacs were exported all over the world, from the United States to Asia and the Pacific region. The first Remy Martin Grande Champagne cognac was created in 1830. Furthermore, the house designed a logo for the first time in 1870, it is the zodiac sign Sagittarius. Thanks to a sponsorship in 1910 with Remy Martin the Second, the house was able to realise its full potential in the years to come. The first cellar master of the house was Andre Renaud in 1924, who later became president. The immediate success of the Fine Champagne Cognac VSOP in 1927 is characterised by the blend of crus Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne, which reflects the highest quality. In 1948, the house decided to produce cognac exclusively from the Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne crus. The advanced technology of the time, the first cooperage located in Merpins and the development centre are the hallmarks of the company today. All three were introduced by André Giraud. To consolidate the excellence, André Hériard founded the partnership with today's Alliance Fine Champagne in 1965. The modern digital technology for managing the cellar stocks was introduced by Georges Clot in 1990. In 2007, Pierette Trichet became cellar master and created Centaure and Centaure de Diamant. Remy Martin always strives to maintain sustainable agriculture, with success, as it is recognised by the Ministry of Landscape. Remy Martin's vineyards, in the Charente region (the sixth in France), have been awarded the "High Environmental Value" (HEV) certificate by the Ministry of the Countryside. Today, Baptiste Loiseau, born and raised in Cognac, the next generation cellar master, is taking Remy Martin into a bright future.
