Paul-Emile was a descendent of Rémy Martin of the eponymous Cognac house, and established his distillery in Machecoul because of the damage phylloxera had done in the vineyards of Charente, the region encompassing Cognac. The most important variety in St-Rémy's more than century long history has been Folle Blanche, a common brandy grape.

It began exporting to the rest of Europe in the 1920s and further abroad beginning with Canada in 1967. Major markets for the brand today include Canada, Scandinavia and recently, Vietnam.
