History of A.E. Dor
Amédée Eduard Dor gave his name to this cognac distillery. In 1858, as a descendent from an ancient family from Cognac, he finally realized his dream: to become the owner of a small cognac company and follow his passion, which was to make the most exquisite cognac around. Even though his company would never exceed a certain size, the products it would produce over generations to come remained to be of the highest quality until this day.
News, Products & Anecdotes
A very interesting point to note is that A.E. Dor was exempted from the law of 1946, which stated that all cognacs have to have a minimum of 40% in alcohol strength. This meant that A.E. Dor were able to sell their Tres Vieilles Grandes Champagnes, very old vintage cognacs that forcibly loose alcoholic strength over the decades.
