“Since 1724, Rémy Martin has been first and foremost a vigneron. For almost 300 hundred years, they have been growing grapes and distilling wine into their precious eaux-de-vie. Even today, Rémy Martin continues to respect their distilling traditions by remaining committed to classical methods. For example, using lees in small copper stills called alambics to produce a more intense spirit with better depth and intensity of flavor. This adherence to tradition and quality has helped them maintain their consistency to keep their signature aromatic flavor. Eaux-de-vie (waters-of-life) are what give a cognac its distinctive, signature aromatic intensity and flavor. They can only be created after a long, delicate, and traditional distillation process. The very aromatic heart of Fine Champagne cognac. Furthermore, since only the finest eaux-de-vie can be selected, the Alliance Fine Champagne, together with wine growers and distillers, are extremely particular when it comes to the rigorous selection of these eaux-de-vie.”
