For you, with passion, humility, respect for his Earth, The Maison Drouet produces

DROUET since 1848

A need to be exceptional

Tradition, a love for the land and their deep roots are notions close to the heart of the Drouet family. For four generations the Drouets have worked hard to nurture and transmit these values with as much passion as they devote to producing spirits.

There are no great quality Cognacs without great quality grapes. Mother Nature has endowed us with the incomparable terroir of Grande Champagne, contributing so much to the stunning flavours of our eaux-de-vie that we strive to be exceptional.

Our summer release : Pineau Rosé

Under the initiative of the AOC, a new “rosé” category has been launched, thus Patrick worked on a new product: a lighter Pineau, brighter and intensely fruity. Our Pineau Rosé has been aged for only 8 months, including 6 months in oak barrels. Its peach color, its aromas of strawberries and raspberries freshly picked, create the perfect harmony for the sheer pleasure of the palate. This release is a limited edition. For a real summer experience, drink it on the rocks!

Domaine Drouet welcomes its first hive

Last fall, we sowed our first mellifère fallow, a flowering fallow whose flowers were chosen according to their food benefit for the bees. It will also improve local biodiversity and soil quality.
Our fallow is now in bloom. It is with a real pleasure that we welcomed our first hive! A second must follow. Thank you to the beekeepers Ghislaine and Jean-Charles.

Domaine Drouet is now a “High Environmental Value” estate.

Le Domaine Drouet devient exploitation à Haute Valeur Environnementale

We are proud to announce Drouet Cognac received the HVE certification level 3, the highest level.!
We engaged in December 2016 in this environmental certification process created by the French Ministry of Agriculture. We first established a complete review of how we work with the Chamber of Agriculture to produce in a more ecological manner. This involved upgrading our work and adaptation of our cultural practices. We have achieved these objectives set around four themes :

At Domaine Drouet, we cherish our soil, we want to protect it and contribute to a greener planet.

Harvest 2017

The grape harvest began on September 14 at Domaine Drouet
for about 2 weeks.

This is the culmination of a year of work, a year in which, unfortunately, the weather has mishandled the harvests, which does not detract from the concentration and pleasure that the whole team takes to collect and vinify the grapes of ugni white, colombard, merlot.
