Eye: Deep amber with ruby reflections.

Camus Family Legacy Cognac: Five Crus for Five Generations

Appropriately named, Camus Family Legacy Cognac acts as a tribute to the combined experience of five generations of the Camus Family: a rich and sumptuous blend of five crus, married step by step in eight stages to create a glimmering amber liquid housed in an exceptional crystal decanter.

This Hors d’Age expression adheres to the Camus family’s ancestral rules of perfect blending, a record of past expertise taken from the Cellar Master's cahier de coupe dated to the 19th century. Eaux-de-vie from five crus - Bons Bois, Borderies, Fins Bois, Grande and Petite Champagne - have been blended from the youngest to the oldest to ensure the most balanced and delicate match. Aged in French oak barrels, each step takes approximately three months to ensure perfect and subtle integration of all aromas. 

A rich, refined and sophisticated cognac, Family Legacy is the true marriage of modern passions and family tradition.

Since Jean-Baptise Camus founded his company in 1863, four generations have followed in his footsteps to turn this small winegrower into a world-renowned Cognac house of distinction. Their family-owned vineyards are part of a magnificent estate of 280 hectares (691 acres), located in the very heart of Cognac. Under Cyril Camus, fifth-generation director of Camus Cognac, the family remains passionate about responsible cultivation, allowing their fields to accumulate organic matter while preserving wildlife in the surrounding environment.

Presentation of the Bottle

Based on a vintage decanter design created several decades ago, the Family Legacy bottle has been re-envisioned with contemporary lines and finishes of modern elegance, a fine expression of the family’s philosophy. Finished with a multi-faceted crystal stopper, gold details and a solid black presentation box, this release is the very image of luxury and class.

About 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. 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.
