Camus is a international brand of Cognac that has been produced by five generations of the Camus family since 1863. The family has always controlled every stage of the cognac making process from the soil and the grape to the finished blend and the bottle, ensuring that every CAMUS cognac is marked by the personality of the family and the floral character of the Borderies, the smallest and rarest cognac growing area where CAMUS‚ vineyards are located.

The Hennessy museum is the most recent, the most ambitious and the most modern of all the Cognac houses. The building is made only of materials that are used in the making of Cognac : limestone, copper, wood and glass.

It hosts an international exhibition every year. In 1996, inaugural year of the museum, the exhibition was devoted to Ireland, land of the founder of Hennessy Cognac.
