An uber small operation importing and distributing geeky spirits in the US.
PM stands for ‘Paul-Marie’. PM Spirits is a tribute to Nicolas Palazzi’s late father, Paul-Marie Palazzi.
We import cool spirits made by small artisan distillers who are our friends.
We started out focusing on our first love, cognac— including both the cognacs we bottle ourselves under our own label and those that our friends bottle under theirs. But since then we’ve extended our repertoire to a range of profound, small-production distillates from around the world.
We only work with spirits that we would drink ourselves. As of now, that includes Frank Cornelissen’s Sicilian grappa, single-cask Spanish brandies (in collaboration with Equipo Navazos), the handmade agave-based spirits from Mezcal Vago, and painstakingly made eaux-de- vies from independent producers like France’s Laurent Cazottes (located just outside of Bordeaux) and the Rochelt family in Tyrol, Austria, among many others.
Currently, we function as two separate but overlapping operations: a portfolio of imports that we distribute exclusively in New York, as well as a nationally distributed portfolio that is currently available in 24 states. Both portfolios demonstrate our commitment to the following core beliefs.
