Welcome to French Libation !
Our company is the link between French producers and the American market specializing in hand-crafted wines, ciders and spirits.
We strive to select qualitative and affordable libations that express their terroir perfectly. Above all, we work with producers we believe in.
We focus on regional US distribution with partners in over 25 states.
Directly from the cellars to our customer door, we coordinate logistic supports (options), provide training support, and press submissions.
Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our partners through fine product selections, right prices and high-quality service.
Three (rather) young people - Emilie, Adrien & Chrystele - who believe in passion, intelligence and personal commitment.
Three personalities – creative, ambitious & rigorous - with complementary skills and experience acquired in the US market for (many) years.
P.S. : Emilie, Adrien & Chrystele are French but are NEVER on strike.
French Libation was born from the merger of The Wine Sailor, a fine wine company created by Emilie Terrier from Grenoble and French Brews & More, a humble craft beer and cider portfolio gathered by Adrien Carrard from Marseille.
They were friends and colleagues and shared the same passion for great products and great people, so naturally decided to work together and create French Libation. Emilie & Adrien both lived and worked in the United States for several years. Chrystele from Lyon (the capital of gastronomy) came on board a little bit later.
They divide their time between traveling in the US and (re)discovering French terroirs.
