Argonaut Speculator BrandyThe Argonauts of the Gold Rush were speculators, leaving home for the unlikely opportunity of striking it rich in the goldfields. The miners too were speculating when staking claims, betting that the gold in these plots was worth more than the purchase price.Argonaut speculator pays homage to our former master distiller, who laid down quality stocks of brandy for decades, without a specific program in mind. This blend is proof that he made a good bet.Tasting Sweet aromatics of caramel give way to a robust brandy layered with flavors of caramelized fruit, dried fig, toasted oak, and brown spice.At Argonaut, we believe California brandy is ready to rank alongside the worlds most acclaimed spirits. Exceptional brandy starts with exceptional grapes. We source from our own vineyards and from growers weve worked with for generations. We use our 80-plus years of California vineyard expertise to pick grapes at their optimal ripeness for distillation with the ideal balance of acid and sugars for peak brandy flavors.Argonaut is the rare brandy that combines both Alembic and Coffey distilling. We use 20 copper, Alembic pot stills made by renowned manufacturer Robert Prulho of Cognac, France. The centuries-old method of double distillation in an Alembic pot still is a more labor intensive process than distillation in a continuous still, but its one that produces spirits of exceptional smoothness and balance. Alembic pot distilled brandies are prized for their roundness on the palate and layered aromatic expression.We also use Coffey stills which allow to distill very quickly after fermentation to capture the freshest character of the wine. The Coffey distillation allows us to zero in on the notes and peak fruit flavors we prefer. The Alembic gives us a luscious mouthfeel and balance. The resulting marriage of these two different distillates is a fuller, very complex and balanced brandy.Our Head Distiller Rita Hansen blends from more than 100 premium brandy lots, selecting an array of ages, grape varieties, barrel sources and distillations to create the depth, complex characteristics and unique flavors in our brandies.
