Founded in 1880 by Honoré Fillioux in the heart of the Grande Champagne, this outstanding cognac house is now run by his great grandson Pascal J. Fillioux. Pascal is a very small and passionate producer making a range of natural, trditionally-styled cognacs.
The Coq is a mature Eau-de-Vie with an average age of 8 years. It is lively on the palate with flavors and aromas of raisins, ripe melon, nuts, exotic spice and the Fillioux family’s trademark: orange confit. This cognac is warm but quite balanced with a soft finish.

Viticulture in the Southwest of France was initially established by Phocaean traders and certainly expanded under Roman occupation. The region’s network of rivers made it possible to transport its wines to distant markets and by the 2nd Century AD, wines from the Southwest were the most highly prized in Europe.
The vine louse, phylloxera, literally wiped out the vineyards and the 2000 year-old traditions of the region. A renaissance that began in the 1950s continues to this day as enthusiastic growers and a new generation of winemakers reestablish the ancient vineyards.
Cognac, which is produced in an area north of Bordeaux is a distinct brandy, noted for it’s elegant, perfumed character.
