Luc Merlet

Head of sales and marketing for Distillerie Merlet & Fils, I developed the Merlet brand in twenty eight countries since I have taken over this role in the company in 2008. From Merlet fruit liqueurs, I have added and developed the cognac range and new liqueurs since 2010, collaborating on the products concepts and blending with my father and my brother. Since 2011 I have launched and expended our international cocktail competition Sidecar by Merlet in fifteen countries. Working closely with Tony Conigliaro over ten years, we founded together in 2017 with a third partner, Guillaume Le Dorner, a cocktail bar dedicated to cognac spirit, in the city of Cognac.
