Independent since 1863 when Jean-Baptiste Camus organized a group of producers to sell cognac under the brand ‘La Grande Marque’ today, Camus continues to uphold an uncompromising family philosophy that has held for five generations.
Camus is a family business with an international attitude, driven by the passion and dedication of its people who strive to create products of the highest quality and taste. The Camus vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the best area within the Borderies Cru, in the very heart of the Cognac appellation. Borderies is the oldest and smallest cru in the appellation, representing less than 5% of the Cognac AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée). 188 hectares (464 acres) of this estate are cultivated with grapes, surrounded by forests and naturally preserved areas, representing the largest extension of vineyards belonging to one single producer within the Cru region.
Rarity and refinement are at the heart of what Camus produces, where casks rich in flavour and aromas are hand-selected for use and where we as a whiskey company, have direct access to select the finest casks for our whiskey. The family ensures that the vineyards are cultivated in a sophisticated and responsible manner, allowing the fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving the wildlife in the surrounding environment.
The entrepreneur, Cyril Camus, is part of the fifth generation of Maison Camus. The partnership between two like-minded entrepreneurs, Alexander Baring and Cyril Camus is as unique as it is natural as the setting where the casks mature on Lambay, due to their mutual beliefs in driving ambition and innovation through the expertise of their heritage and impeccable standards.Return
