Armagnac: The beautiful, high-class brandy steeped in history and tradition

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.

Key Takeaways:

  • Armagnac is produced both small scale and in large productions
  • Each armagnac is different because of the difference in the fruit, weather, and other factors
  • There are three different French regions where armagnac is produced

“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.”
