Delord Bas Armagnac Creation N° 5 is alive with sophistication.

Delord House got its start in fine entrepreneurial spirit when Prosper Delord built a portable alembic still that he drove from farm to farm as a contract distiller for local wineries. Business was good, but his sons — Gaston and Georges — brought the operation in-house, establishing their own brand — Armagnac House Delord Freres in Lannepax, France. The business is still independent and all in the family with Prosper’s great-grandsons Sylvian and Jérome running operations and marketing. They are an estate producer of premium Armagnacs with their own vineyards, distillery, aging cellars, and even bottling on site and all done by hand.

Delord has a storage warehouse filled with the equivalent of 100,000 bottles of aging Armagnac. The Delord family decided to craft a limited edition series of numbered “Creations” — special blends of their Armagnac from casks twenty years old and up. So the lack of an aging statement is no cause for concern since a good portion of the spirit in these bottles is far older. Bas Armagnac Creation N° 5 was blended to emphasize fruit notes and is bottled at 44% ABV.

If we’re calling dibs on who gets first-born privileges, Armagnac edges out Cognac. The Spirit is the oldest type of Brandy in France, with documented distillation dating back to the early 15th century.
The best way to enjoy a Calvados or Cognac is in a balloon-shaped snifter. Armagnac? Try a Champagne flute or a tulip-style glass instead.
To delve even deeper with Cognac and Armagnac, they live about 180 miles apart, so they're practically neighbours. Cognac is mostly made from one sort of grape, while Armagnac loves variety. The most interesting difference is their PR: Armagnac is one of the oldest Spirits on the planet and it was rarely exported. Cognac, on the other hand, was the export blockbuster with good marketing. It even had Napoleon III as its poster boy, who made sure Cognac was sold in every medieval supermarket.
