OVER A CENTURY OF HISTORY
Vincent Jacoulot was born in 1864 in Romanèche-Thorins, in the heart of the Beaujolais « crus » region (Moulin à Vent, Fleurie, etc) in Southern Burgundy.

THE SIGNATURE OF A UNIQUE STYLE
THE ART OF AGEING
Drinks industry professionals and spirit and liqueur lovers instantly recognize the distinctive « Jacoulot signature ». A unique combination of great aromatic complexity and a rare finesse of flavours, our style comes first and foremost from a savoir faire which has been raised to the level of art: the ageing in oak vats and barrels in our cellars. Over the years, often for many decades, the slow maturation of the Marcs and Fines de Bourgogne in oak containers of various sizes – known as fûts , demi-muids and foudres – will polish, round out and add complexity to these great spirits and liqueurs from the terroir.
A BLEND OF TALENT(S)
Then, with dozens of eaux de vie of various ages as the base material, blending is the other major contributor to the unique Jacoulot style. Like an orchestra conductor blending harmonies and bringing out individual personalities, the cellar master produces a unique composition of a broad range of Marcs and Fines de Bourgogne. Their consistent character has been the cornerstone of their success ,and our reputation for excellence, for nearly 125 years.
