Maxime Trijol Cognac

With a history dating back to the mid-1800s, cognac Maxime Trijol not only produces eaux-de-vie from its own vineyards, but also purchases wine from other producers as well to be able to distil higher quantities. Five generations of family have kept the traditional methods of cognac production alive and well, and today they oversee every part of the cognac production. Because the estate purchases other distillers’ wine, they are able to produce a wide range of cognacs from a variety of growing areas in the Cognac region.

History of Cognac Maxime Trijol

The Trijol family set up their estate in Saint-Martial-sur-Né in the mid-1800s, and the first pot still was installed in 1859. The house of Maxime Trijol has remained a family run business, being passed down through five generations. 1954 saw the estate expand into becoming a professional spirit and cognac trading house, until it gained professional distiller status in 1962. This meant that not only could they produce cognac from their own vineyards, but could also purchase from other distillers as well.

The estate continued to expand over the years, installing more stills and producing more cognac. With the ability to buy wine and eaux-de-vie from all the six appellation areas of Cognac, they began producing a wider range of cognac.

Maxime Trijol Cognac Today

The estate of Maxime Trijol is run today by Jean-Jacques Trijol, and with twenty two 2,500 litre pot stills, it is one of the largest distilleries in the whole region. The small, close-knit team prides itself in producing cognac of the highest quality in the traditional methods that have been honed throughout the decades. Wines that are purchased from outside are carefully analysed and tasted before being passed of a good enough quality from which to distil their cognac. Only once a wine has been passed can the distillation production commence.

Jean-Jacques Trijol is also the cellar master, and it is under his close eye that each and every bottle of cognac is produced. Not a cognac leaves without being tested at every stage of production by both him and the other members of the team. The final products are shipped to a worldwide clientele, and Cognac Maxime Trijol bottles are all quality controlled and marked with batch numbers which allow traceability back to the exact barrel that the cognac came from.
