Within the heart of Gascony in the south of France, the Armagnac is the oldest eau-de-vie produced. The Armagnac is produced by a single distillation of white wine in an Armagnac Alembic. After the with wine distillation the spirit is aged for many years in oak barrels.
The Armagnac is distilled from white wine which fermented out of the following grapes:
- Folle Blanche
- Baco 22 A
After the ageing period, the spirit will be blended by the blender. They call this Coupage and will ensure that the different Eaux-de-Vie will blend in harmonious ways.
