Rated one of the top ten spirits of all time! 

Prosper Delord travelled around the Armagnac region with only his pot still and his cart drawn by two cows, in the search of a method to produce the finest Armagnac there is.

His son later founded the company in 1925 and used the knowledge that his father gave him to perfect the tradition and quality of this magnificent liquid. Their vineyards expand over 20 hectares of land. In their ageing cellars one can find Armagnac dating back to 1904.

Armagnac is the oldest brandy distilled in France, however the vaster region of Cognac built itself more recognition across Europe (and France for that matter) and also the production of Cognac has always been bigger. That does not mean Armagnac is in any way inferior, au contraire mon frère; it is small distilleries with grand heritage like Delord that are a treat for the senses and should not be overseen!

Having aged for at least a quarter of a century in Maison Delord's cellars amongst a thousand other casks enjoying their slumber, each bottle of the Bas Armagnac 25 Year Old is filled and wax sealed by hand on site as it waits to be enjoyed by you. The 25 Year Old earned a score of 96 points from Wine Enthusiast and five stars from F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal, which recognized it as one of the top 10 greatest Spirits of all time.

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.
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.
