Grandes maisons

Edgard Leyrat had a philosophy to sell his cognacs "Nature and Pur," No caramel should be added to give a deeper color and sweetish taste, he said he was a small distiller who felt being squeezed out by the combined pressures of the banks and their preferred customers, the "grandes maisons," the big producers. In 2005 Leyrat sold to Francis Abécassis.
