The centuries-old
history of success

Timeless stellar reputation
Time stands still here
Paul Frédéric Roullet
The history of Roullet Сognac House dates back to the XVIII century to a place called Le Goulet in the village of Foussignac located to the north of Jarnac in the Cognac region. This is the place where the Roullet family owned vineyards from 1772 and where Paul Frédéric Roullet founded the Cognac House in 1780.
The Roullet family manor

250 years

For almost 250 years the family descendants and cellar masters created great drinks under the Roullet trademark passing on their experience, savoir-faire and century-old traditions from generation to generation.

Timeless stellar reputation
Paul Frederic Roullet managed to enter into a close relationship with the Royal Court. Napoleon Bonaparte was known to become one of the first connoisseurs of the Roullet Cognac House. Thanks to these ties, the Roullet company survived the French Revolution and received the Republic's license to distil and supply cognac in 1791. Roullet became one of the suppliers for the Bonaparte and Napoleon armies.

Aiming for the best with respect to traditions
The next stage in the company's growth and development relates to the beginning of the XIX century when Paul Roullet married the daughter of the Delamain Cognac House founder, the oldest cognac producing family still famous for its drinks' production. This marriage resulted in the consolidation of the two houses. The company was called Roullet & Delamain for some time. Delamain negotiants got access to unique Roullet spirits and the Roullet family gained experience in the selection of cognac spirits, the process of maturation and blending, allowing them to create a stock of unique cognacs.

Interesting historical facts
Roullet Cognac House was one of the first companies which started selling cognac in glass bottles in 1783. One of the Roullet family members settled in Paris in the Hotel Genlis on the Dauphin street to sell bottled cognac in the capital. It was unusual and, of course, aroused keen interest among cognac connoisseurs. The demand for Roullet products rose sharply at that time.

Roullet today
Nowadays Roullet Cognac House is part of SAS LES VIGNOBLES REUNIS-ROULLET Company. Despite being a modern company that takes into account the market trends and consumer preferences, the House still remains committed to the family age-old traditions. Mathias Paul Roullet, the ninth generation, keeps a watchful eye on the «eaux-de-vie» and perpetuates his family traditions. The company has more than 200 hectares of its own vineyards, the majority of which (about 140 hectares) are located in Fins Bois, the historical homeland of Roullet – Foussignac and Migron. About 30 hectares are situated in the heart of the Grande Champagne vineyards in Saint-Preuil and Segonzac. There are also vineyards located in Maleville, Grande Champagne (18 hectares) and in Sainte-Lheurine, Petite Champagne (16 hectares).
The year 2015 was marked by a truly grandiose event for the most sophisticated cognac connoisseurs. With special emphasis on the highest quality, Roullet Cognac House produced only 10 000 bottles of Fins Bois and Grande Champagne cognac aged for more than 15 years. This special edition is devoted to dedicated consumers who value and appreciate the unique organoleptic properties of Roullet cognacs.
