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. Over the years the house of Maxime Trijol has remained humble to its roots as a family run business, meaning, years of knowledge and expertise have been passed down through five generations. The house of Maxime Trijo gained professional distiller status in 1962 and the house has since strived and succeeded in expanding and cultivating its own vines to use when distilling and ageing Cognac Maxime Trijol. Today, the house boasts twenty two 2500 litre stills, which has undoubtedly allowed the house to expand range and production in order to sell their Cognac in much larger quantities than the brand used to.
