Cuvée presentation

Camus Napoléon is a cognac blended from spirits aged in oak barrels for at least six years. La Grande Marque was the name of the company founded by Jean-Baptiste Camus in 1863, later renamed Camus La Grande Marque.

The distillery Cognac Camus

Camus was founded in 1863 by Jean-Baptiste Camus, a wine-grower and distiller who sold his spirit to various cognac houses. To found his own house (La Grande Marque) he began by bringing several winegrowers together in order to ensure better control over the production and quality of the cognac. He quickly went beyond this approach, buying shares from his partners and renaming the house “Camus La Grande Marque”. In 1894, he was joined by his oldest son Edmond, who became the cellar master, then by another son, Gaston, who developed the export market. Camus cognac was exported from a very early stage, notably to the UK. Gaston expanded this activity as far as Russia and the brand became the official supplier for the Court of Tsar Nicholas II. This work was continued by Michel Camus, who joined the business in 1932 and maintained the connection with Russia, which had since become the USSR, via an import-export contract signed in 1959. He also set up sales in airports and created porcelain and crystal decanters. His son Jean-Michel successfully developed the company in Asia, notably in Japan. Today, Camus remains a family-run house whose success continues to grow.
