Nicolas Duvernois

Entrepreneur. Author. Speaker.

Entrepreneur at heart, Nicolas has always been full of ideas. In 2006, after going through a catastrophic first experience in business, he decided to launch Pur Vodka. He is now internationally recognized as both the producer of one of the world’s finest vodka and trendiest gin, but also as an inspiring leader for aspiring and young entrepreneurs. His motto : Cheers to crazy ideas!

Dans l’Oeil du Dragon

Nicolas is back for the new season of the Dans L’Oeil Du Dragon show, starting April 8, 2020!

The show

Hand sanitizer


In the early days of the crisis, we asked ourselves the question, how could we concretely contribute to help? By changing our purpose and producing large formats of hand sanitizer, our team decided to join the fight! Together, one day at a time, we will emerge stronger from this crisis.
