Cognac, the prestigious wine spirit, is crafted in the wine-growing regions of Charente and Charente Maritime in France. Maison Méry Melrose is a unique cognac house, blessed with an incredible terroir; chalky soil, proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and abundant sunshine. This terroir enables us to elaborate aromatic cognac, as well as elegant wines and organic pineau.
With a firsthand approach, in true artisan style, we have created a magical collection of cognac.
Our collection includes single estate organic cognac and blended cognac. Always Grande Champagne Cru, and always matured in French oak cask. Crafted by François Méry, a fourth generation cognac grower and cellar-master. Our cognacs are carefully bottled at our cellars.
The crafting of cognac is the transformation of grapes, through vinification and distillation, an art which requires great imagination.
16th Century Tradition, Cognac Distillation
Distillation has been a tradition in Cognac since the 16th century. François Méry as cellar master, elaborates cognac at the distillery and cellars that were founded by his grandfather in 1946. Today he creates exceptional cognacs, in honour of his ancestors.
Faithful to the tradition of his ancestors and know-how of a great cellar master, François distills using his family’s Charentaise copper still.
Double distillation occurs in small batch, the capacity of the still is 20 HL and only the heart cut becomes cognac. Double distillation ensures that we capture and concentrate the finest aromas of cognac.
“My grandfather started his distillery in 1946” (François Méry).
Maison Méry Melrose have a distinctive style and one feature of our cognac is our distillation method, which consists in distilling the wine with its lies, this creates the most powerful cognac, which can endure long aging, a tradition typical of the Grande Champagne Cru.
