The Maison François Peyrot was born in 1893 from an idea by Jean Baptiste, but only in 1956 the grandparents of the current owners have the intention of dedicating themselves to the distillation and production of Cognac. In 1971 the first bottle was sold under the name of Cognac François Peyrot and from that moment a series of successes will continue that continue today. The 25 hectares of vineyards, where the grapes from which the Cognac are obtained are harvested, are located in the municipality of Jarnac, in the “Grande Champagne 1er Cru de Cognac”, and are cultivated with the utmost respect for the environment, nature and the ecosystem , preferring quality over quantity. The Maison François Peyrot also produces fruit-flavored liqueurs, Pineau de Charentes, Punchy and Cocktail, and then wines and fruit in spirit with Cognac.
