Neben den Destillaten der vier eigenen Weingüter verwendet Camus für seine Cuvées weitere, bereits ausgereifte Destillate von ca. 250 Winzern! Durch eine besonders sorgfältige Auswahl von bis zu 170 nach Jahrgängen oder Orten verschiedenen Cognacs für einer einzigen "Blend" entstehen Cognacs, die sozusagen die "hohe Kunst" der Komposition eines Cognac ausdrücken.

"Michel Camus (1911-1985) was only 21 when he joined the firm in 1932. He continued to build Camus' relationship with Russia, winning an exclusive spirits export and import contract between France and Russia in 1959. In the early 1960s he started doing business with American group DFS Galleria. He introduced a variety of gift presentations targeted at travellers, including items such as Limoges porcelain and Baccarat crystal decanters, and first promoted the superior Napoléon quality in a signature frosted bottle.
Jean-Paul Camus: Born in 1945 and joining the company to help his father as Master Blender in 1977, Jean-Paul Camus bought new vineyards, distilleries and storage capacity, focussing mainly around the traditional family base in the Borderies growing area. He also pursued his father’s commercial policy in duty free, developing sales in airports and airlines in the Asia-Pacific region. Camus Napoleon was the best selling cognac of the 1980s, with annual profits of over $100 million thanks to the exclusive worldwide sales rights with Chuck Feeney through DFS Galleria. This became the most popular cognac in Japan.
Cyril Camus, born in 1971, completed a business degree in the US before joining CAMUS as the company’s Trade Relations Director in Beijing, China in 1994. He returned to Cognac in 1998 as Marketing Director, overseeing the creation of numerous new products for the duty free market. He also developed the Company’s signature Borderies XO, a pure Borderies blend from the family’s own vineyards, and a new cognac from Ile de Ré. Becoming President in 2004, Cyril developed the Camus Elegance range."
