divine dining

Chef Marc-Antoine Lepage oversees two tantalising restaurants: La Distillerie – a buzzy, lantern-lit brasserie – and fine dining options Les Foudres, open just for dinner, where gourmet creations are served up in an intimate underground chamber lined with time-worn cognac barrels. 

Lepage sources farm-fresh produce from across southern France – expect creamy Poitou goats cheese, legendary Echiré butter, and fines de claire oysters from the Atlantic coast. On Saturdays, book in for the table d’hôtel, a seasonal set menu devised by the chef each week. 

If you’ve any appetite between meals, pop into Angélique Café for just-baked cakes and pastries from the talented pastry chef, alongside Le Parti du Thé tea and a bespoke blend of Merling coffee.

Room service
La Distillerie’s menu is available as room service during restaurant hours seven days a week; on Fridays and Saturdays, dinner from Les Foudres can be served in your room for a gastronomic feast with extra privacy.

sip & Savour

Live jazz takes centre stage under the vaulted ceiling at Le 1838, which is housed in the maison’s old cooperage (and open every evening from September to April from 5pm to 1pm). The cognac connoisseur can pick from several hundred local varieties behind the bar, or mix it up (literally) in a cocktail – go for The Road Jack if you like the sound of Cognac VS, white Pineau des Charentes, lemon thyme syrup, floral honey and a dash of sparkling water. 

And up at Rooftop Guinguet (named for the outdoor dance halls that fluorished in France in the Roaring Twenties), watch the sun set over the Cognac landscape, expertly mixed cocktail in hand.
