Thanks to its experience, Doreau Cooperage acquired its reputation by staying true to the Cognac market
since its creation as well as from its proximity with winemakers, distillers and Cognac Houses:
Hennessy, Oreco, Courvoisier, Martell, Camus, Château de Laubade, Spirits France, Tiffon Braastad, Hine, H. Mounier, Leopold Gourmel, Bache Gabrielsen, Delamain, Bisquit…
Year after year, these companies give us their confidence and loyalty. Doreau Cooperage perpetuates its expertise by controlling every stage of production, including the air-drying process. Just as a winemaker selects its parcels of fruit, we meticulously select our wood to extract the very best from our blends. Every barrel in our collection, combined with the right toast, will enhance your spirits’ character, while still respecting their finesse and identity.
SMOOTHNESS, ELEGANCE, FINESSE
Crafted to combine power, aromatic intensity and finesse, this barrel allows the intrinsic character of the spirit to be revealed.
BALANCE, ROUNDNESS, POWER
The Spirit Standard. This barrel works very well on all types of spirits.
The perfect harmony between wood and toasting.
FINESSE, RESPECT, SUBTLETY
Specially created for aging spirits made from light wine distillation, this barrel will push your spirits’ fruity, floral and spicy notes.
VERSATILITY, AROMATIC RICHNESS
Wanting to innovate, we created a Cigare barrel, particularly adapted to spirits such as Cognac, Whisky, Rum and Beer.
Its specific shape offers a large exchange surface between wood and alcohol which will optimize the ageing.
The toasting is an essential step in the production process. It allows the bending of the barrel, and it is from the control of this operation that the durability of our barrels will depend on. The “bousinage” will then reveal the oak’s aromatic pallet. The cooper must give its typicality to each barrel by reproducing a precise toasting profile. He has to use his experience, by controlling the temperature of the fire and the heating time.
