ARMAGNAC

Armagnac is a French wine distillate produced in the Gascony region, south of Bordeaux, with several white grape varieties: Ugni Blanc, Baco, Colombard, Folle Blanche. Distilled in continuous stills, called "Armagnacais", Armagnac is aged in oak barrels of 500 liters, from Monlezun forest in Gascony. It is considered the oldest brandy in France; the first traces date back to 1400, even earlier than those of Cognac (1549). The distillate now enjoys the AOC (French DOC) and the typical production areas are divided into three areas: BAS ARMAGNAC (considered the best for long ageing), TENAREZE, HAUT ARMAGNAC.
