Delamain is one of the oldest and last family-owned and run houses in Cognac. It was established in 1759 by James Delamain, and is still run by direct family descendents, Charles Braastad-Delamain and his cousin, Patrick Peyrelongue. The house of Delamain is strongly attached to its tradition of craftsmanship. It specialises in ageing and maturing high quality Cognacs exclusively from the Grande Champagne region.
The Cognacs are meticulously selected from individual producers, many of whom have traded with the Delamain House for generations. Immense care is taken to maintain the quality of the Cognacs through the ageing process, and the Cognacs are left to mature in cask until each reaches perfection. They are then blended and married to create a product that expresses the Delamain style.
