Camus Cognac

Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the Camus family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. Laid across 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - the Borderies - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the people who live on it that helps them craft superb Cognacs. 


All Camus products

Camus Elegance range is a bold illustration of the House of Camus’ living tradition with Cognacs that truly respect the original character of the eaux-de-vie and are remarkable for the finesse of their blends. 

In 2000, the House premiered with the first-ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac. A solid success, it was to become the Camus signature release, offering an outstanding combination of violet and vanilla spice aromas of intense velvety smoothness.

In its ongoing search to explore the diverse regions of the Cognac appellation, Camus became the first Cognac House to capture the unique marine notes of the Ile de Ré vineyards. Raised and aged on the island, Camus Ile de Ré Cognacs typically offer fresh iodine notes with hints of dried fruit with archetypal mellow softness. Produced in limited quantities, they offer a rich and unique taste experience. 

The Instant of Intesity series uses eaux-de-vie uniquely distilled with the ‘intensity’ method at House of Camus, where they select the most aromatic litres of the heads during the second distillation. After being distilled on the lees, the eaux-de-vie are then aged in small fine-grained French oak barrels to amplify their aromas. The result is a range of exceptionally flavorful Cognacs, thanks to an unusually high concentration of esters.

Camus also proposes a Masterpiece collection of rare, limited cuvées, each consisting of a unique, exceptional blend presented in spectacular cases as well as Rarissimes vintages of most extraordinary Cognacs - certified under bailiff’s supervision and bottled without reduction, allowing them to express the full strength of their character.

History of Camus

In 1863 Jean-Baptiste Camus founded a collective of producers to create the highest-quality Cognac, called ‘La Grande Marque’. As development was very positive and business was flourishing, Jean-Baptiste decided to buy out his partners and establish his own independent Cognac house, which he named Camus La Grande Marque. After his death, his two songs Edmond and Gaston Camus took over the running of the company in 1894. Edmond then acted as Cellar Master while the younger brother Gaston looked after the export business. Gaston’s travels brought great success; he even received an order from the Court of the last Tsar of Russia, Nicolas II, to supply them with fine spirits. 

Following the two brothers was Michel Camus, yet another clever business mind. He attacked the international market even more aggressively, seeing a huge potential in the growing duty-free market. Michel approached the American group Duty Free and got a deal with them in the early 1960s, delivering a variety of products, including luxury decanters made from Limoges porcelain and Baccarat Crystal. In 1977, his son Jean-Paul Camus joined the company as Master Blender. Jean-Paul furthered the duty-free business that his father introduced to the Asia-Pacific region, notably to Japan and Korea, firmly establishing Camus as one of the five leading Cognac houses at the time.

Camus Today

Today, it is Cyril Camus who is the bearer of all family tradition and oversees the undisputed quality of Camus Cognac. Export development and product development remain at the top, with a passion for innovation. Cyril Camus has entirely modernized the Cognac house’s interiors, relying on a fresh new take on Cognac for the new century. Instead of leather, wood and velvet in shades of brown, he opts for light colors and a combination of tradition and modern design.

The business strategy of the modern Maison Camus is that of diversification, leading them into the future of Cognac. Embracing the strengths of tradition, they also remain at the forefront of science to reach new levels of intensity in aroma and flavor.

@ Jim: yes the Chunghwa XO is indeed produced by Camus, targeting China's market. If I remember correctly, the first edition has a box that looks like the Chunghwa cigarette box from China. Try to Google it and you should be able to see some pictures of both the rounder bottle and the square bottle.

My cousin asked me to find out how much her collection of these special cognac bottles is worth. She inherited the collection from her departed father and she has continued to collect them. So these bottles I'm talking about belong to a rare special-edition-porcelain-bottled-cognac-collection that were bottled on behalf of soccer world cup tournaments in 1978, 1982, 1986 and 1990 as well as olympic games in 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992 and 1994. My cousin has two pieces of some of the bottles. ALL the bottles are sealed and unopened. All the bottles, except one of the 1978 year Camus bottle, are in their original card board package. In the end of this email there's a link to dropbox folder, where you can find some pictures of these bottles. My cousin also has some rare porcelain "book" bottles of Camus Napoleon cognac in their original packages. (Pictures can be found from behind the link) My cousin would like to know how much the whole collection of 1978-1994 sports tournament bottles are worth. (They will not be sold separately) Those bottles that have pairs would be sold separately as well as the "book" bottles. She is willing to sell all the bottles if she can get a reasonable price.

Max 2011-12-28

Hi! Those porcelain cognac bottles from Camus are hard to find, and hard to buy today. You may want to look in our category YOUR BOTTLE (in BLOG section) where users submit pictures of their old cognac bottles. You should find something there. There are cognac collectors out there who still purchase and sell those Camus bottles.

saxon wolf 2011-12-27
