Description

Baron de Sigognac 50 Year Old Armagnac is presented in a square glass decanter bottle, with glass stopper, a brass type label and is packed in a very smart and solid wooden case. The youngest Armagnac in the blend is at least 50 years old. Armagnac is the oldest spirit in the world, used as a medecine in former times it has been distilled and appreciated since 1411. Legend has it that France’s King Henry IV (1553 – 1610) had Armagnac and garlic placed on his lips by his grandfather on the day he was born. He is said to “have drawn wisdom and strength for his whole life” from that experience. But Armagnac is also a region, part of the southwest of France whose symbol is a vine-leaf, and is divided into three “sous-appellations” : Bas-Armagnac, Ténarèze and Haut-Armagnac. Baron de Sigognac is owned by the Guasch family and based in Gascony. Their vineyards of Ugni Blanc and Baco are dedicated exclusively to producing Bas Armagnac. Once distilled the colourless spirit is aged in 420 litre oak barrels. It is here, in barrel, that the Armagnac leaches vanillins and tannins from the toasted oak which lend the spirit colour and flavour. The depth of colour and complexity of flavour increase all the time the spirit is aged in cask, the colour can can range from pale straw to rich amber. Part of the alcohol evaporates naturally during the long years in cask – this is known as “la part des anges” (the angel’s share). Baron de Sigognac 50 Year Old Armagnac will make an excellent 50th birthday present or 50th anniversary gift.
