Established in the heart of the Cognac vineyards and born from the association between an experienced cooper and two trading experts, Kwercus dedicates its activities to the producers of spirits, wines and craft beers.
The distribution and servicing of barrels and large wood containers are our speciality!
Kwercus isn’t a cooperage per se, thus does not produce in-house.
However, the products and services we market reflect our comprehension of each producer's requirements and the application of the best oenological practises to our coopering expertise. That is what we consider to be the keystone to a successful and trustful relationship with our customers in the long term.
Our new oak barrel range, up to 500 litres, is manufactured by a French artisanal cooperage who provides Kwercus with tailor-fit productions.
Long established in Medoc, west of the city of Bordeaux, he offers complete traceability of all the selected wood, including origin, finesse, and open-air drying times, while adhering to strict toasting specifications, designed by us, in collaboration with a professional oenologist.
For larger format wood containers, Kwercus is an authorised representative company for one of the oldest and most renowned Italian cooperage. Their acclaimed expertise and workmanship are the guarantee of premium manufacture and high quality standard aesthetics.
With a large selection of premium oakwoods, a state-of-the-art toasting technology, and a complete list of accessories, the custom manufacture of casks, foeders and vats will be performed following the customer’s most specific requests.
The supply of second-hand barrels is based on the authenticity and quality of our procurements.
We especially emphasise the freshness, the guarantor of the olfactory and organoleptic qualities of the previously contained alcohol or wine. The traceability of successive uses is equally a pillar of our purchases.
The inspection, preparation and possible repairs are carried out within the principles of the craft, in our workshops, by our master cooper.
The experience and skills of our house cooper are at your disposal to repair or to maintain your barrels, tanks or vats. His expertise and attention to detail offer a true technical support for your projects, whether setting-up or moving cellars.
Consulting for sales and marketing of Wines, beers and Spirits
Thanks to years of experience working at a family-run cognac house, and now as co-founder of the company, I have a deep understanding and vast know-how of the alcohol business in the US and Canada.
I am extremely familiar with the American culture and the consumption habits, and I have extensive knowledge of importation and distribution channels. Equally I can call upon a large professional network to assist in the guidance of your activities in different markets.
