Rémy Cointreau


Rémy Cointreau, Paris and Cognac, France.


Rémy Cointreau was established in 1990 as a result of a merger between two French companies: E. Rémy Martin and Cointreau. Major brands include Rémy Martin Cognac, Mount Gay Rum, Cointreau liqueur, Metaxa Brandy and Bruichladdich Scotch Whisky (following the purchase of Bruichladdich Distillery in 2012).

The House of Rémy Martin Cognac was established in 1724 and acquired 200 years later by André Renaud in 1924. It has remained in the family since with his son-in-law, André Hériard Dubreuil, taking over in 1965. Since the 1990 merger the chairmanship of Rémy Cointreau has been held by Dominique Hériard-Dubreuil and more recently by François Hériard Dubreuil (with other members of the family on the board of Directors too).

Cointreau was established in 1849 by the Cointreau brothers, Adolphe and Edouard-Jean, in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou, Western France. Their success came when they created their own brand of triple sec in 1875, a liqueur of sweet orange, bitter orange, sugar beet and alcohol. This Cointreau liqueur has been a continued success, today selling around 13 million bottles per year, across 150 countries.
