Camus is the largest independent family-owned Cognac company and fifth among Cognac companies. Since 1863, five generations of the CAMUS family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac in their own style. Today, Camus remains a proudly independent company, with a strong belief that craftsmanship, passion and quality are the keys to a product’s enduring success.
CAMUS is one of the largest landowners in the Borderies cru – the smallest of the six growth areas of the Cognac AOC – famous for the ageing potential of its eaux-de-vie. The fact that the CAMUS family home Le Plessis lies at the heart of this cru is proof of a special attachment to the land.
Controlling every stage of the cognac making process from the soil and the grape to the finished blend and the bottle, the family ensures that every Camus cognac is marked by their personality and the floral characters of the region.
