Meet our artisan of the month, François Gilles!

The Foundation Rémy Cointreau is delighted to share the first of a series of video-portraits showcasing our exceptional artisans and their savoir-faire.


This month, discover the trade of an ornamental sculptor with François Gilles, a young man with an impressive background. Settled in his workshop, François shares with us his passion for sculpture, the intensity of the craft’s precision as well as his vision of Transmission, which is essential for the continuity of this rare trade.

The Foundation Rémy Cointreau is proud to support this deep will to transmit and to help François in the development of his activity.



Our sincere thanks to Philippe Lassale for his work.
