Armagnac is France's oldest eau-de-vie with more than 700 years of history. At Château de Pellehaut, the Armagnac is produced from the distillation of white wines using Gascogne still (a continuous single distillation). The distiller works around he clock, day and night, to oversee the slow transformation of the wine into armagnac. On leaving the still, eau-de-vie is placed into 400L oak barrels, "pieces" and stays there for ageing for many years before being commercialised. Château de Pellehaut produces both blended and vintage Armagnacs. They are known to be fine, soft and complex.
