A Unique Eau-de-Vie

In our region of Charente, vines grow in clay-limestone soils favouring the production of grapes that are well suited to ageing. This led to the creation of geographical boundaries of six "crus", or production districts, within the controlled appellation area of Cognac, which was established in 1909.

High Environmental Value & Agrobiological Approach

The Estate’s vineyards are cultivated with a constant concern for the respect of the land and that of the natural ecosystem and water resources. This was put into effect by implementing sustainable agricultural practices starting in the early 2000s. Then Patrick made the choice of committing his viticultural holdings to an HVE farming approach (“Haute Valeur Environmentale” or High Environmental Value) following the adoption of the Grenelle Environment Roundtable. His efforts and his dedication to protect the environment were rewarded by a HVE Level 3 certification for the estate in January 2018.

Grande & Petite Champagne

The Drouet estate is located 12 kms south of the town of Cognac. Its 40 hectares are spread across the first two most prestigious “premier crus”: 70% in Grande Champagne, and 30% in Petite Champagne, the second “premier cru” of the appellation.

The Drouet family proposes a range of purist Cognacs Grande Champagne, cognacs that are elegant and highlight this unique terroir. In 2017, another range was launched, one of Craft cognacs, highly original in character stemming from either “premier cru” or the second “deuxieme cru” vineyards, produced in small batches and numbered.

Their portfolio also includes Amrut Single Malt Whiskies which is one of the most awarded whiskies from India.

AMRUT FUSION INDIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

AMRUT FUSION INDIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

An incredible combination of 75% Cask Strength Single Malt and 25% Cask Strength Peated Single Malt, are further aged to create this multi-award winning whisky.

"One of the great whiskies found anywhere in the world" - Jim Murray - The combination of the two single malt whiskies is then further aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 6 to 9 months. The barley used in the peated malt is malted at Bairds Malt, Inverness Scotland. The intensity of the peated barley is mellowed on its journey to India. It is further mellowed when combined with the single malt, leaving a flavor that is more spicy than peaty, which is why it has won so many fans world-wide. Amrut Fusion has won over 10 significant awards. Its first major recognition came in 2010 when it was named 3rd best Whisky in the World by the Whisky Bible and rated at 97.5 points. Besting nearly every Whisky on the earth that year put both Fusion and Amrut Distilleries on the whisky map. It also won whiskey of the year award at 2019 Bartenders Spirits Awards.
