Distillery Information

The distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. The distillation, the most essential and fascinating stage in the production of Armagnac, takes place at the beginning of November through to the end of December.
Armagnac is column-distilled, which is a process where the alcohol is continuously heated between two vertical columns and then aged in French oak barrels or casks for a minimum of 1 year. Though Armagnac and Cognac are both are brandies distilled from wine, Armagnac is distilled once while Cognac is distilled twice.The commercial denomination of XO (Extra Old in English) is made up of Armagnacs that have been aged for at least 10 years. XO, that is very popular abroad, is less known in France, however, it will delight those that are looking for elegant eaux-de-vie that are rich and smooth.
Armagnac is produced in the South-West of France (the Gers department, the East of the Landes and the South of the Lot-et-Garonne) whereas Cognac is produced 300 km further North (Charente, Charente-Maritime, part of the Dordogne and Deux-Sèvres).
