Cognac Normandin Mercier
Founded in 1872 by Jules NORMANDIN, then a broker and owner in Cognac, the Normandin-Mercier House is celebrating its one hundred and fiftieth anniversary.
Edouard Normandin, the fifth generation, is the Cellar Master and markets eaux de vie from his great-great grandfather.
The location of the estate, near La Rochelle, is the result of a strategic choice made in the 19th century. The city was the first port of export for Cognac, and a major maritime and rail route.
This almost exclusive situation allows for optimum ageing of the Cognacs, thanks to a natural regulation of hygrometry and temperature. These are cellars where only Grande and Petite Champagne Cognacs are aged.
