Concentrating solely on cognacs produced from both the Petite and Grande Champagne, Cognac J Normandin-Mercier is based in the beautiful surroundings of Chateau de la Peraudiere. The brand remains faithful to its century old traditions to create cognacs that range from a VSOP upwards, along with a selection of Pineau de Charentes. This family run cognac house is today headed by Edouard, Jean-Marie and Audrey Normandin, who together strive to ensure their products are created with the personal touch and expertise for which the brand has become known for.
With a history spanning back over 100 years, the house of J Normandin-Mercier has always produced eaux-de-vie from only two of the cognac growing regions; Grande and Petite Champagne. Creating their wares with a 'quality over quantity’ philosophy, the family Normandin has passed their chateau and business down through the generations.
The site of Chateau de la Peraudiere was carefully considered back in the 19th century and was a strategic location aimed directly at the production of superior quality cognac and ease of distribution. Close to the town of La Rochelle, not only is it close to the sea, but also to the rail networks. The town was the major exportation centre of cognac at that time. In addition, the climate in this area lent itself extremely favourable to the distillation and aging process of the cognacs that filled the chateau’s cellars. Importer Notes
