The Audemus Distillery is a little atypical for the Cognac region, where you might usually encounter giant copper beasts which can churn out hundreds of litres of their spirit a day. In fact, there are only a handful of distilleries around the globe that create the way Audemus do.
They operate a vacuum distillery out of the distiller’s (Miko’s) living room in the centre of Cognac. The principle behind this method of distillation is simple and now well documented. By lowering the pressure inside the still, they lower the temperature at which the alcohol will boil – meaning they avoid cooking the botanicals they distill; ensuring the freshness of flavour is maintained. Distilling is always distilling – evaporating and condensing; nothing more – however, it is a process that is infinitely complex in its simplicity and allows for a myriad of detail.
