Seguin Moreau, one of the most traditional cooperages of the world, with its headquarter in Cognac and a production workshop in Chagny. Set up in 1870 and 1838 respectively, the SEGUIN and MOREAU cooperages were joined in 1970 under the auspices of Remy Martin. In the heart of the Merpins cooperage in Cognac, there is a giant workshop where large barrels, tanks and casks ranging from 10 to 1,200 hectoliters are made and assembled.
Seguin Moreau is also famous for its fine grain Haute Futaie oak which from the finest forests in the Center of France. Today, the cooperage encompasses three production sites worldwide, two seasoning yards and two integrated stave mills (in France and in Missouri). Complete control over the production process means consistent control of the oak’s quality from the tree to the finished barrel.
