Cognac A.E. DOR
Founded in 1858 by Jean Baptiste DOR, it was his son Amédée Edouard DOR who gave his letters of nobility to the House of A.E.DOR in 1889. He began an original and meticulous work that he carried out throughout his life: His passion: high quality Cognacs. With a tenacious will, he researched, selected and collected the best cognacs and eaux de vie. At that time, professionals called him "the antique dealer of cognac".
After having aged in Limousin oak barrels for decades (70 years and more), without any mixing or additional addition, some of these venerable eaux de vie from Grande Champagne, the first growth of Cognac, were carefully collected at the fullness of their aroma in Dames-jeannes sealed with wax, in order to preserve them and keep them intact.
Today, these glass bottles, enclosing their precious nectars, sleep in a secret cellar called "Paradise", unchanged since its creation, proudly displaying their prestigious vintages.
They are the jewels of our house, an incomparable heritage, containing harvests whose origin generally predates the famous phylloxera, i.e. 1874. They have kept their precious contents intact for more than a century and have justified the reputation of our company throughout the world. They are the heart of A.E. DOR
