Crafted in Gascony, just a hop and a skip away from Cognac in Southwestern France, Armagnac is a 700-year-old spirit that lives in the shadow of its more-famous cousin. Hand crafted in often small quantities, it is single-distilled from a blend of grapes that includes ColombardFolle Blanche, Baco Blanc and Ugni Blanc. Typically, Armagnac is produced by using column stills, rather than the pot stills that are used to make Cognac. It is an intensely evocative spirit that delivers a broad spectrum of flavors. This complex, nuanced spirit commands a powerful presence among aficionados and casual sippers alike.
