Armagnac is often wrongly said to be the little brother of Cognac. The history of Cognac goes back to the 17th century, while Armagnac was mentioned in documents as early as 1461. Even then, the distillate was used as medicine.
With the expertise of the Romans, the Gauls and the Moors, Armagnac was distilled and refined over centuries. Today enjoys this oldest French spirit high reputation. Armagnac comes from Gascony in southwestern France, where the corresponding grape varieties also grow and ripen. During distillation, this brandy is distilled only once and then aged in new oak barrels. These barrels are built from six-year aged holm oak wood and give Armagnac its brilliant amber color and distinctive bouquet. The longer the Armagnac is stored in the barrels, the higher the quality level.
