For 160 years, Camus has created expressions of exceptional quality, making it a sought-after Cognac globally. It is the largest Cognac house that remains fully family-owned for five generations. The brand has been associated with history, tradition but also innovation and entrepreneurship especially under the direction of Cyril Camus, its current President.

Chris Seale, Managing Director, Speciality Brands says: “Cognac is a category we've always been really passionate about, and we see great opportunities for growth here in the UK. We're really excited to have Camus as part of our offering.

“The family-owned brand boasts over 160 years of history and shares many of Speciality Brands' values making this an ideal partnership. We've got an ambitious plan this year and we're looking forward to raising awareness of the brand and building a strong distribution network across all channels.”

Taking over from Whyte & Mackay, Speciality Brands will handle all commercial and marketing activities for Camus in the UK and will focus on the classic and Borderies ranges and the limited-edition Ile de Ré. The Camus range will be available from April 2023.
