Get seduced by France’s best-kept secret, Armagnac.

Steeped in a history that goes back 700 years and flavored by the characters that can only be found in Gascony; a sip of Armagnac recalls secret cellars, musketeers, French berets and a character as unique as the people that put their heart and soul into producing it.

Join us on this guided journey through the picturesque vineyards and dramatic cellars of Gascony, and enjoy an unprecedented tasting of Armagnacs. The tasting will highlight the range of styles produced from VSOP to XO and from Hors d’Age to Vintages. Local grape varieties, proprietary distillation techniques and the importance of the local oak barrels will all be discussed. You will come away with a deeper understanding of this fine spirit and an appreciation for why the French are more than happy to keep this seductive spirit a secret all to themselves.
