The Cognac house Maison Audry was founded in 1878 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner, Parisian lawyer Bernard Boisson. In the early 1950s, Audry stopped selling Cognac, but some very old stocks were held back in reserve with the hope the house would one day reemerge. That day came in 1978, when Bernard resurrected the dormant family estate. Audry is now made by a master blender who combines the ancient reserve with a few lots bought from a select group of Charentais growers.
Now in its fifth generation of family ownership, Anne and Renaud are committed to maintaining Maison Audry's impeccable standard while driving broader recognition of their line of Cognacs. Anne is now creating the artwork that is on the labels, taking inspiration from her in-depth knowlege of the landscape of Charente. This is the ultimate insider's brand, with its reputation spread largely by word-of-mouth. Audry Cognacs are among the world's finest, and the original stocks allow them to produce very high-quality, artisanal selections.
