Maison AURIAN

Condom, France

In the picturesque town of Condom, nestled in the heart of the Gers region in France, there lies a legacy that spans over 140 years. Maison AURIAN, a family-owned business, has been crafting exceptional spirits and beverages since its inception in 1880. The story of AURIAN is a tale of craftsmanship, excellence, and boldness that has been passed down through generations.

The origins of AURIAN can be traced back to Joseph Dupeyron de St Arailles Gers, the visionary grandfather of Jeanne, wife of Marius AURIAN. It was Joseph who first began the aging and blending of Armagnac in the 19th century, setting the foundation for the family’s pursuit of perfection. Tragically, Joseph’s son lost his life in the First World War. However, his daughter, Jeanne, married Marius AURIAN, and together they carried on the family legacy.

Marius AURIAN, a man of great ambition, transformed the house into a renowned négoce, particularly between the two world wars. His dedication and passion for the craft earned AURIAN a prestigious award for its Armagnac in 1932. Marius’s son, Jean, continued the tradition as a distiller and merchant. He developed the waxing technique that still graces the AURIAN bottles today. To pay homage to Jean’s innovative spirit, each luxury box now includes a silk handkerchief for wiping away the wax remnants, just as he did.

In 2018, the baton was passed to the new generation, Isabella and Florent, who took over the family business. Their mission is crystal clear: to perpetuate the handcrafted legacy that AURIAN has carefully nurtured for more than a century and a half. They remain unwavering in their commitment to producing exceptional products with love and without compromise. Drawing inspiration from their ancestors, Isabella and Florent aim to continue innovating and pushing boundaries in pursuit of excellence.

At Maison AURIAN, tradition and history are deeply cherished. The products are meticulously crafted in adherence to time-honored techniques, and the company strives to maintain transparency regarding the origin and manufacture of its offerings. Natural ingredients form the backbone of AURIAN’s spirits, including Armagnacs, liqueurs, aperitif wines, and traditional aperitifs. Craft beers are also crafted using the same commitment to quality. Wines, alcohols, plant and fruit extracts, and infusions are all sourced from natural ingredients, and the distillates and aromas are 100% natural.

The core values of listening, respect, and tolerance permeate every aspect of Maison AURIAN. The company is dedicated to fostering benevolence and fostering positive relationships with employees, customers, and collaborators alike. AURIAN carefully selects distributors who share the same work philosophy and values, ensuring professionalism and excellence in every partnership. Continuous improvement and the pursuit of novelty are key principles that drive the Maison AURIAN forward.

Preserving their ancestral heritage is of utmost importance to Maison AURIAN. The company proudly occupies historic buildings, including century-old cellars constructed with sustainable materials. A commitment to sustainable development guides their choices in sourcing materials, using only the finest quality and durable components. 

By collaborating with local craftsmen, AURIAN harmoniously blends the charm of the original structures with new, raw, and noble materials, breathing new life into this emblematic place in Condom. Maison AURIAN stands as a testament to the enduring power of craftsmanship, excellence, and boldness.
