History of Francois Voyer
Since the French Revolution the Voyer family is cultivating its vineyards in the villages of Verrières and Ambleville, both prime locations in the Grande Champagne region and home to many cognac producers. At the end of the nineteenth century, Paul André was one of the only winegrowers distilling his own production. Today, thanks to him, the oldest vintage in Voyer's cellar is more than 70 years old.
Like other small distillers, Francois Voyer cognac is made solely with self-produced grapes. The family grows, distills and bottles themselves in order to control quality and stick to traditional values in cognac making. The expert knowledge of the family has been passed from father to son for five generations, since 1870.
