About Armagnac:

Armagnac is a very unique French brandy made of white grapes and produced in the region of the same name in the heart of Gascony, southwest France. 

Armagnac traditionally uses column stills rather than the pot stills used in the production of cognac. Armagnac is traditionally only distilled once compared to Cognac’s double-distillation. 

Armagnac can use 10 different grapes varieties, mainly Baco 22A, Colombard, Ugni Blanc, and Folle Blanche while Cognac uses also different white grape varieties, mainly Ugni blanc. Cognac never uses Baco 22A which is the only hybrid variety (Folle Blanche-Noah) to be allowed in a European Appellation. 

The concept of vintage year bottlings is more developed with Armagnac than cognac.
Although nowadays Armagnac may be overshadowed by Cognac, Armagnac is one of France’s oldest spirits, and it was in production over 150 years before Cognac.

In Armagnac, estates are very small compared to most Cognac producers. Château de Laubade is the most awarded producer of Armagnac.
