The Distillerie du Peyrat has distilled cognacs for several decades and the family dates back to 1705 as distillers in the Charente region. After distilling cognac for bigger well known brands, the owner decided to produce and market his own cognac with a rather unique specialization in the Cognac area: the production of organic cognacs. Distillery du Peyrat now produces exclusively 100% organic cognacs. Located in a small village 10km east of Cognac on the banks of a river, du Peyrat produces, distills and ages their eau-de-vie with the respect of the environment and the intense expression of the terroir.
Cognac du Peyrat is certified organic by the USDA, and the strict European organization, Ecocert. The distillery has also committed to:
– Choosing “green” electricity produced by sustainable methods.
– Installing photovoltaic solar panels.
– Adopting the use of recycled paper.
