The Maison Delamain is one of the most historic in Cognac, a heritage passed down since 1759, the year when an Irish émigré, James Delamain, settled in Jarnac, in the heart of the Charente region. The name Delamain is definitively part of the Cognacais heritage in 1824, when Henri Delamain, grandson of James, founded the Maison Delamain. Since then, a requirement of every moment is implemented in the service of production. First, in the choice of eaux-de-vie, only selected in "Grande Champagne", the flagship region where the best eaux-de-vie necessary for the manufacture of Cognac come from.
Another originality, Delamain reduces the alcohol content of cognacs - after double distillation - with old cognacs low in alcohol, rather than with water ("classic" process). The Delamain style is cognacs from very long aging (minimum 20 years) in French oak barrels, at the origin of a fine, pure and elegant aromatic. Since 2017, the Delamain family has partnered with Bollinger to perpetuate its brand image.
