Over the last century, five generations of bold and passionate entrepreneurs have crafted spirits following in the footsteps of famous fruit-liquor maker Emile Perrier. The latest to carry out this tradition are even somewhat rebellious. In the 1980’s, Jean-Michel Naud, a trained oenologist and passionate explorer of wines and spirits and son-in-law of Robert Perrier, rediscovered the distillery. Today, with his son Pierre, they have decided to reignite the flames under the copper pot stills to create a distinguished line of Cognacs.
Under the brand name NAUD – also referred to by the moniker “Noble and Unusual Distillery – the Naud family invites you to share their passion for the art of distillation by revealing these treasured spirits which have been kept secret so long.
Built in the 19th century in the Cognac region, the ancient grain mill of Pinthiers, with its authentic paddle wheel, became the family distillery in 1923. Well-hidden among the greenery and set upon a small island, the old limestone building, which is surrounded by lime and willow trees, is bordered by two arms of the River Seugne, which flows into the River Charente. This outstanding distillery, hidden on its own island, now produces some of the world’s finest Cognacs and NAUD is now ready to share with the world.Visit Brand Website
