LOUIS ROYER

Distillery
Founded in 1853
Louis Royer is situated in the town of Jarnac, overlooking the Charente River. One of the oldest Cognac companies in the World, known for their love for bees, hence their bee emblem.

Louis Royer was more than just a skilled cellar master, and it didn’t take him long to realize he would be much better off running his own business, rather than working for other Cognac houses.

He set up his first Cognac still in 1853 at the ripe old age of 25. Before that, he kept bees to produce his own honey—a hobby that he maintained for his entire life.

The logo of the Louis Royer Cognac remained a gold and blue honey bee to this day.

In 2013, Louis Royer Cognac developed a state-of-the-art bottling facility, increasing production by 100%. And, while they are currently responsible for over 80 employees, the traditional methods of Cognac production have not been forgotten.

Working with all 6 of the appellation areas, the rise of his empire was bound to happen using the skills he acquired as a cellar master.

Today the fifth generation of the family runs the business and it remains just as Louis had imagined it; bringing different appellations to people from everywhere and showing them a different kind of Cognac.

Louis Royer Cognac produces a core range of fine Cognacs—from VS through their very special 38 Years Grand Champaign, and a few special releases that were evidently distilled by Pterodactyls during the Jurassic Epoch.

Well, not quite that long ago, but you get the point. These guys have been making some of the finest Cognacs in the world in strictly limited production since the Spring of Nations. They do one thing, and they do it very well.

Louis Royer is one of the few distilleries that produce kosher Cognacs. Production of such Cognac started only 15–20 years ago and from the get–go it was extremely difficult to make. Nowadays things are getting easier on the production side, but you still need to follow the legislation closely because Cognac is Appellation d'origine contrôlée. Currently, we can only find 3 or 4 distilleries in the Cognac region that offer kosher Cognacs, so it is still a very small, albeit a fast-growing market.

Lately, Louis Royer started branching out a bit and they are now producing a range of Pineau des Charentes, Brandy, Liqueurs, and even Vodka. Their premium Vodka is made from wheat grown in Ile de France region and sells under their L'Ecrin Brand.
