The company is one of the global leaders in the cognac category and has been at the vanguard in developing cognac consumption in Asian markets and launching super-premium products (Louis XIII, 1738, etc.) that are pushing the boundaries of spirits luxury brands. It is well placed to benefit from economic recovery and return of the long-term positive trend of spirit “premiumisation”.

In 2014, after more than 10 years of partnership with the hériard-Dubreuil, Verlinvest sold its shares in Rémy-Cointreau. Verlinvest had invested in Orpar (the family control vehicle) in April 2004.
