Camus cognac house celebrates 150 years

Camus, the last major, independent and fifth generation family-owned cognac house in France, is celebrating its 150th anniversary. It has kicked of the year with a new logo featuring a streamlined version of its iconic cloverleaf and unveiled Cuvée 5.150, a limited edition cognac in a specially designed Baccarat crystal decanter.

Cuvée 5.150 is an assembly of five ancestral cognacs, each chosen for its character to symbolise the distinguishing mark left by the successive generations of the family at the head of the house. “A tribute to how each generation has built on the skills of the previous one and breathed new life into lasting traditions,” says Cyril Camus, president of Camus.

For the 150th anniversary, Camus is also launching a renewed website and YouTube channel to share brand insight and product exclusivities. Its Facebook page will feature a competition starting in March encouraging fans and followers to share pictures on their “Finer things in life”, Camus’ mission.

Château du Plessis, the Camus family home in Cognac, will also launch a new Elegance range in new premium packaging and redesigned bottles.

No celebration would be complete without a commemorative book - which will be published by Editions de La Martinière - and a documentary film telling the story of the House.
