Second-generation owner, Robert Prulho, and his son Richard have dedicated their lives to pursuing their passion for excellent Cognac. Their hard work has certainly paid off, walking away with numerous awards, including gold medals from the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and the Citadelles du Vins.

With the knowledge that has accumulated over generations about the importance of perfect distillation, the ripening process and flawless blending, the Prulho family are sure to continue going from strength to strength.
