Handcrafted / Exclusif / Contemporary / Family-owned
Family-owned group since 1837, its name is directly derived from the mandrake, a rare plant shrouded in mystery. Ancient people attributed magical properties to it and it generated a considerable number of legends.
The history of Mandracore (French for mandrake) has unfolded over time thanks to the addition of skills and common values.
All in a family spirit, the group benefits from the diversity of alcohols - Armagnacs, Cognacs, Vodka and Gin - but also of the trades and geographical locations of its different firms. Nicolas Sinoquet is currently in charge of the group's destiny. His double-hatted activity, production and marketing, combined with valuable lessons from Rémy Cointreau enable him to take the helm of Chateau Gruaud Larose that he has run for 5 years, side by side with owner, Jean Merlaut. In collaboration with those who build the spirit of the different distilleries, they perpetuate tradition while inventing the future of the group's different firms.
