In 1934, the Painturaud family in Segonzac created its own brand of cognac, and Jacques Painturaud took this forward and became the companies founding chairman.

Today, two of his sons, Jean-Phillipe and Emmanuel continue in the footsteps of their elders, much to the delight of their father.  “It’s great to see children continue what their parents and grandparents have set up,” says Jacques.

Jean-Phillipe, 41, is responsible for the day to day operating of the business, whereas his younger brother, Emmanuel, takes charge of increasing their direct sales.

This weekend, they open their doors to the public as part of the celebration of the distilleries.  On the agenda are snacks of cold meats, oysters and coffee, with an explaination of the distillation process.  This will be followed by a tour of the cellars and a step back in time to the earlier half of the twentieth century.  Visitors will be privy to the old presses and other tools of the trade the brothers grandfather used when setting up the company.

Finally, there will be a tasting session of cognac and pineau, along with chocolates and various other treats.

    Please be careful to the pictures you join to the article. This is not a bottle of Painturaud cognac but Guillon-Painturaud, which is not the same brand.
