Create your own cognac

Atelier Maître assembleur

Famous for its eau-de-vie, Cognac is a city where history and heritage meet up on every street corner. After a boat trip on the river Charente, enter the prestigious intimacy of the major cognac trading houses.

Want an experience off the beaten path? With this workshop 'Master Blender' Camus house, you can concoct your own cognac. Become master assembler and compose yourself, under the guidance of a professional, cognac that suits you the best. You will leave with a bottle labeled with your name and your creation will even be registered in the records of the Camus house!

At the end of this unusual workshop, go to the restaurant Les Pigeons blancs, housed in a former Relay station of the seventeenth century. This gastronomic restaurant is famous both for its local cuisine and for the presence of the sommelier and barman of France Jean Michel Tachet. It offers a cocktail demonstration on certain dates.
