Our history

Amédée-Édouard DOR,
the collector of Great Cognacs,

A former investment banker, Amédée-Edouard DOR harbored two passions at an early age : his love for horse racing and his personal collection of very old cognac eaux-de-vie.

His second passion turns into a vocation

In 1858, he founded his eponymous trading house.
This marked a pivotal moment for his collection

He created a unique sanctuary, le Paradis, where he built up fabulous reserves that can still be seen today. Like a genealogist, he enjoyed discovering the origins and particular stories behind each of his vintages…

Highest cognac lineage

Renowned for his boundless fascination and finely honed knowledge of high lineage cognacs, he dedicates his life to researching, selecting and collecting Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie that are as unique as they are exceptional.

Excellence

Grande and Petite Champagne

Our cognacs are crafted from grapes carefully selected from the most favorable growing areas for aging cognacs.

A.E. DOR cognacs draw their essence from the noblest crus of the cognac appellation: Grande and Petite Champagne. These exceptional terroirs, located in the heart of the appellation, yield grapes of the highest quality, offering a palette of rich, complex flavors.

Expert in the art of blending Fine Champagne Cognacs.

Our cellar master is an expert in the art of blending Fine Champagne cognacs. Meticulously, he blends Grande and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, ensuring that the proportion of Grande Champagne represents at least 50% of his blend

Our distillers preserve the art of distillation of Maison A.E. DOR.

Each stage of the distillation process is imbued by the visionary spirit of its founder, ensuring the quality of the eaux-de-vie that will later mature in oak barrels.

Each step of the process is meticulously controlled to create quality eaux-de-vie.

Aging in oak barrels

The patient work of the cellar master, who guarantees the quality of the eaux-de-vie, continues with the maturation process in the cellar.

Our cellar master is a true blending professional, meticulously creating harmonious cognacs with floral and woody notes with care and expertise. He selects and perfects only high-potential eaux-de-vie, capable of revealing the inimitable A.E. DOR signature. The blends created by our cellar master reflect his profound passion for the art of creation, giving birth to cognacs that satisfy the most discerning palates.

The talented craftsmen of Maison A.E. DOR are Guardians of a Tradition.

They take the time and care to wax and dress each product by hand. In this quest for excellence, they recognize that true perfection often lies in the imperfect details. This devotion to craftsmanship is an integral part of our founder's heritage, making these practices an inherent aspect of the very identity of the House of A.E. DOR.

Our Heritage

“Le Chai Paradis” : the Sanctuary of Old Vintages

Our treasures are invaluable, but we reserve them for a select few...

"Each vintage for a time, a work for a lifetime, a heritage for eternity”

The treasure of our House, this private museum boasts a unique collection of wax-sealed dames-jeannes containing Grande Champagne cognacs, the oldest of which dates back to 1805. Prior to this, all our precious eaux-de-vie spent many years in oak casks, allowing them to develop the fullness of their aromas, without any blending or additional additives.

Our Collection

Time has no influence on the way we feel and experience cognac. We are passionate about cognac from the very beginning. With patience and dexterity, our House has been crafting very old cognac with the same gestures and vision since 1858. Our cognacs are more than just great and rare eaux-de-vie ; they are experiences tinged with excellence. Each of our vintages has its own story and secrets that we like to share with our guests. Behind each vintage lies a cru, a terroir, an era, people, and life stories…
