When you are enamoured of Cognac, like myself, you can only talk about it with passion. Each product has a story to tell, its own story. As a book, a story or a poem which you will always remember, a good cognac is never forgotten.
Since eleven generations, the House of Prunier, one of the oldest cognac houses, has learnt how to keep its own history alive together with its identity and esteem for its products. Each member of the family has maintained the motto: quality and respect of local traditions.
Each one has watched over our heritage while remaining open to the world, Paraguay, Australia, Mexico, Ghana, China….Prunier was one of the first houses to open to new markets. While following sociological evolutions, artistic tendencies and new techniques, our strength is to keep a foot in the past and have a view of the future.
Today it is my turn to pass on the memory of the House of Prunier. In a few years times the sixth generation will continue the story. For the moment I watch over our products which are the heart of the trade, while preparing tomorrow. Without forgetting the past the House of Prunier continues without respite to search to offer you the best products. In each of our bottles you will read our history and passion.
What would be cognac without the earth and the special light of our district. Full of sun, the vines of the Charente and the Charente Maritime express their opulence in the quality of exceptional cognacs.

We are proud to own a ‘Paradise’ which is now the testimony of qualities as they were consumed in the 19th century. Legend leads us to believe that there is an underground river flowing under the Cognac cellars and that it contributes to the inimitable taste of Prunier cognacs.
This cognac is coming from our damp cellars, stocked in casks of 350 litres and “forgotten” in order to allow the natural evolution of the product to operate. The blend is fairly simple and is made up of 4 to 6 different cognacs. This choice gives an authentic character to this cognac rather than respecting the house style.
