This 4th generation artisan distillery is nestled a few miles from the town of Cognac. In the hands of PATRICK DROUET, its 80 acres of vineyards are situated in GRANDE CHAMPAGNE 1er CRU, the top growth area or “cru” of Cognac. Its vineyards yield elegant eaux de vie that receive long ageing in French oak barrels to reach optimal maturity. Accomplished master distiller, Patrick Drouet, is a true “modern style old schooler” blending the best of traditional methods and new thinking. Between tending the vines, harvesting, vinification, distilling, ageing, and bottling, all taking place on the estate, Drouet is the essence of a SINGLE ESTATE Cognac. Produced in small quantities and distilled with great precision and passion, Drouet Cognacs are pure, beautifully smooth, and benchmark examples of how stunning this spirit can be. Drouet is quickly establishing itself as one of Cognac's top family owned estates, attested by its impressive accolades in recent years.
