History of Cognac Roullet
It was down to one Paul Frederic Roullet who, after surviving the massacre of the French Revolution, eventually managed to gain a licence from the Republic in 1791 that allowed him to distil wine. He then went on to become a liquor supplier to the armies of Napoleon Bonaparte. He actually founded the house of Roullet in 1780. Since then the house has remained in the family, each generation handing their knowledge and prowess onto the next.
