Popularly known as “Chateau de Cognac”, Chateau Royal de Cognac is a French cognac manufacturing house established at the end of the eighteenth century. Jean-Baptiste Antoine Otard founded the company and the firm has remained within the family since the beginning. It still lies in the Chateau des Valois, its birthplace. The cellars of Château de Cognac have 3 meter (10 feet) thick walls and an extremely high level of humidity resulting from the proximity of the Charente River. This environment plays a determinant role in the maturity of the different brandies offered by the company. France welcomes you to a relaxing tour and tasting of one of its best.

The tasting at the end was good. We bought the entry level Sampling and that was perfect for us. If you are English and interested in Cognac make sure you get this guide as she brought it alive for us (our family is 20, 18 year old daughters and 14, 11 year old sons). Good job
Great experience! Exceptionally interesting tour through the castle with tasting afterwards. The guide lady gave us a lot of information about the history of the cognac and the production. You can finish your tour buying some cognac in the boutique. Thank you!
