Just like rock ’n’ roll, Armagnac is an attitude about life: maladjusted, passionate, unashamed, and soulful at the same time. Brazenly resisting the passage of time, this spirit remains not only the oldest, but also arguably the most authentic in the world.

“A legend says that when God created the earth, he forgot a small corner of Gascony, which made him very sad. A tear ran down his cheek and when it fell to the ground, it formed the region of Armagnac.”

— a local saga


Armagnac is a very distinctive and seductive brandy that can express the rich history and originality of Gascony in a single sip. It’s distilled from wine usually made from a blend of grapes and aged in French oak barrels for many years. Is it different from Cognac? Yes, but comparing the two is like comparing the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. How true that is, M. Gérard Basset! Although they share a geographic proximity, they produce two very different styles of brandy distinguished by their history, grapes, terroir, and simply put, savoir-faire.
