Since the early 1700s, when a winegrower first began selling cognac under his own name, the House of Remy Martin has ascended to the apex of class and refinement. Combining sustainable viticulture policies with exceptional eaux-de-vie, Remy Martin prides itself on the heritage of its three-centuries-old dynasty, the talent of its cellar masters and tasting committee, and its dedication to the future of the brand. As one of the biggest producers of cognac worldwide, Remy Martin's philosophy can be traced back to their logo: the rearing centaur, its feet on the ground and its head in the stars.
