There is a more than five hundred-year-old oak nearby Cognac, called "l’Yeuse", in the middle of wineyards, that was planted in 1492 to celebrate the birth of François The First, «The King of the Kings», who was born in Cognac on the Charente River. This exceptional tree was elected the most beautiful tree in France in September 2014.
The story of «Cognac de l’Yeuse» started in 2014 when Jacques CAVARD, his founder native from Cognac decided to create a new brand to celebrate the memory of his ancestors who dedicated their whole life to this spirit since the end of the 19th Century.
The family’s story started by the end of the 19th Century when Léonard CAVARD, Jacques’ s great great great uncle created a brick factory in 1887 called «Les Tuileries» in Boutiers Saint-Trojan, nearby Cognac on the «Borderie» wineyard dedicated to the alembic for cognac distillation. Emmanuel CAVARD, Jacques’s great great father in the early 20th Century, then Raoul CAVARD, Jacques’s great father before Jacques’s father were developing significantly the family’s company up to 2000.
Brick factory called "Les Tuileries" (Boutiers Saint-Trojan, nearby Cognac)
