Cognac François Peyrot
It was Jean Baptiste, great grandfather of the present generation, who started in 1893 and was probably the one who forged this spirit for the love of the land and the vines of the Grande Champagne.
But it all really began in 1956 (the vineyard was then 7 hectares) when our grandparents Jean and Mathilde started distilling and producing Cognac. Most of the Cognac was distributed to the region's wine merchants.
Little by little, the vineyard expanded. In 1970 our parents, François and Gisèle, decided to launch their own brand and in July 1971 sold their first bottle (a VSOP) under the name of "Cognac François Peyrot".
And it is with pride in this "spirit" that we work every day to give the best of our parents' "know-how" so that "our cognac", the fruit of so much love, hard work and perseverance, may live on.
