After his death in May 1800 the firm fell apart, in 1924 his grandsons Anne-Phililippe Delamain and his cousins of the Roullet family reestablished the name as Roullet & Delamain as a producer of Cognac. The company does not produce any VS or VSOP grade cognac, instead its entry level offer is already a 25-year-old XO (Pale & Dry).
