The county of Armagnac, located in rural France is widely known for its brandy of the same name. It has been made in a traditional manner for several hundred years. Although there have been many processes used to create this rich liquor, it is all created out of labor intensive work, done in a very specific way, according to the tried and true methods. Even though it is also made by larger distributors, its roots are planted in tradition.
“It’s made as it was 700 years ago; distilled in fantastical copper alembic stills on wheels, which arrive in a travelling circus at the end of each harvest to steam and thunder in the oak-beamed and cobwebbed barns of 1,000 Gascon farms.”
