History Of Cognac Louis Royer
In 1853, Louis Royer decided that his skills as a cellar master would be better off used in creating his own business rather than working for other cognac houses. It was in the town of Jarnac, overlooking the Charente River, where he decided to set up the house of Cognac Louis Royer.
The bee was chosen at the inauguration as the emblem of the cognac house. To Louis Royer it was the perfect symbol of the diligence, efficiency and craftsmanship that went into creating his cognacs.
Using grapes from all six crus, Louis Royer established his skills as cellar master and began the painstaking task of trying to export his creations to other countries of the world. Five generations of the Royer family followed in his footsteps, bringing the knowledge and products of Louis Royer to every continent on the planet.

They also produce a number of Kosher expressions .There are other expressions such as their single region or single cru bottlings but sadly they are not imported to the US at least not yet.
Double distilled in copper pot cognac / charentais alembic stills from a base wine with lees it is then carefully aged in a specially selected series of French Limousin Oak casks until ready to be blended. This one is designated as a Fine Champagne VSOP . These area yields some very nice eau de vies .
Taste: Almost more whiskey like in some ways compared to some cognacs in terms of the oak and tobacco element but these are melded with dried fruits, saddle leather and floral elements that are distinctly cognac. A bit more of a closed, masculine bouquet than their other expresssions, but a well balanced and interesting spirit.
