The family of Camus has been producing Cognac for generations. Since 1863 the family cultivates a passion for fine blends of the best eaux-de-vie.
The family controls every step of the production, from winegrowing, fermentation process, distillation and marketing. The floral character in Camus’ Cognacs is due to the use of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies area, the smallest and rarest Cognac growing zone. This is where the vineyards of Camus are situated.
