Jean Grosperrin worked as a Cognac broker in France. A broker in eaux-de-vie plays a very discreet yet strategic role between the producer and the buyer. His job is to evaluate the quality of the eaux-de-vie and to introduce interested parties to each other. His profession takes him to many cellars to estimate the value of different batches, amongst which there are sometimes some very old Cognacs.

Practically all grape-growers distil their own harvest and they usually conserve, as former generations have done before them, some barrels of cognac in their cellars. These family treasures are very rarely up for sale and the transactions are very confidential. It is these Cognacs that Jean, and now his son Guilhem, have sought out and acquired to establish a truly exceptional collection of vintage Cognac.

French law, as restrictive as it may be in matters of age and vintage, has allowed Grosperrin to acquire an incredible collection of exceptional products. This collection is currently the equivalent of more than 81,500 bottles, dating from 1991 all the way back to World War II. Each bottle has the requisite guarantees of quality and authenticity and each tells its own story; a story that will take you back to a place where time has stood still for decades.

Alongside the vintage library there also sits a 12 Year Old and XO Cognac. These "younger" Cognacs, although blended and having had their strength reduced, offer exceptional character and insight into the terroir of the Cognac region and truly represent the dedication to quality that Guilhem religiously pursues.
