Did you know: The barrels used by the famous Rémy Martin Cognac are made exclusively from French Limousin oak which contributes to the aromatic development of the blended eaux-de-vie.

Limousin oak allows a delicate yet substantial exchange between the eaux-de-vie and the air inside the cellar. And thanks to its large and open grain, it imparts a rich vanilla-like flavor to the aging cognac.

Revealing the aromatic heart of the blended eaux-de-vie is probably one of the most subtle and intricate responsibilities. For this reason, their Cellar Master ages them exclusively in Limousin oak barrels.
