NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE) Dreyfus Ashby & Co., a leading wine and spirits importer with a distinguished portfolio of family estate wine and spirits brands from around the world, is very proud to announce the addition of the renowned Cognac producer, Prunier, to its portfolio. The addition of this historic House allows Dreyfus Ashby to complement its premium wine offerings with one of the oldest and most renowned Cognac producers in the world. Dreyfus Ashby will be carrying Prunier VS, VSOP, XO, 20-year-old, and XO Very Old Grande Champagne, as well as offering Vintage Cognacs as they become released by Prunier from the vast library of vintages the House has, dating back to the early 1900s. “The cognacs from Prunier are perfect additions to our portfolio of wines and spirits from outstanding producers from around the world, and in particular France,” said John Caruso, President and CEO of Dreyfus Ashby & Co. “For more than 75 years, our company has had the privilege of representing some of the world’s most sought-after wines and spirits in the U.S. market, and we continue that tradition in this new partnership with the House of Prunier.” “We are delighted to collaborate with Dreyfus Ashby & Co., a renowned and respected name in the industry,” said Claire Burnez, Communication & US Sales Manager and 11th generation of the Prunier-Burnez family. “This partnership signifies a thrilling chapter for our family, extending the reach of our historic Cognacs to a wider audience in the United States. Dreyfus Ashby’s dedication to representing outstanding producers perfectly aligns with our values. We take pride in contributing to Dreyfus Ashby & Co.’s rich legacy and prestigious portfolio. Our trust in this partnership is rooted in the mutual dedication to share our values and the craftsmanship of Prunier to connoisseurs across the nation.” About House of Prunier Prunier has been producing cognac for more than 250 years. Since 1769, through 11 generations of the Prunier-Burnez family, they have been ageing, blending and bottling Prunier cognacs from their historic cellars in the town of Cognac. If vintage cognacs were commonplace in the 19th century, Cognac Prunier was one of the first to revive this category in 1995. The idea was to offer the same tasting experience in the bottle as one has while tasting directly from the cask. These vintage cognacs are cask strength; they are not blended, filtered, or modified. They originate from a single barrel, a single year and a single growth area. This is the purest expression of the terroir within the cognac appellation. All vintages are aged separately in French oak barrels. The traceability of each vintage is important and is maintained through paperwork from distillation, along with regular checks by a bailiff to prevent fraud. For more information about Prunier: About Dreyfus Ashby & Co.
