St-Rémy History


The distillery is established

The distillery is established in Machecoul in the Loire Valley following the phylloxera outbreak which damaged the Charente vineyards. Paul-Emile Rémy Martin II selected Machecoul, where the Muscadet grapes were similar to “Folle Blanche", and set up a distillery to produce high-quality brandy.
