Local families in the Armagnac region have always produced their namesake spirit, but often did not have bottling facilities. This means there are barrels of artisan, small batch spirits all over the area which have been ageing quietly for years. Usually, these individual components will be bought up and used in a blend to create a house style – think of them as the music notes which make up a chord. With the Rare Armagnac Collection, the individual potential of these individual components was realised, and barrels were bought to be bottled individually, giving the opportunity to listen to the crystal clear notes on their own. Tasting them side by side is a rare, Epicurean pleasure.
