Saint Vivant Armagnac

Your Price: $34.99
Saint Vivant Armagnac is a smooth, high quality brandy. Made in France, this full flavored Armagnac boasts a rich tradition that dates back to 1559 when St. Vivant de la Salle produced the first bottle of Armagnac Brandy. St. Vivant de la Salle, a lord who owned a number of vineyards in Gascony, burned the first drops of a liquor which he then distilled and aged in barrels made from black oak from the forest surrounding his chateau. Several years later, he tasted the liquor and was so delighted that he gave it the name of his region, Armagnac, later to become one of France’s most prestigious eaux-de-vie. Selected white wine grapes, native to the southwestern French region of Gascony, are fermented and distilled in traditional copper pot stills. The resulting spirits are aged in oak casks until they are transformed into a premium 80 proof brandy. The cellar-master then begins his delicate task of blending this brandy until he achieves the smooth, consistent flavor and golden amber color of St. Vivant Armagnac. Ever faithful to their famous ancestor, the producers of Saint-Vivant Armagnac continue to distill their product in keeping with age-old traditions and have commemorated St. Vivant de la Salle’s achievements by using the “crooked bottle” originally used in the sixteenth century.

Saint Vivant Armagnac

Saint Vivant Armagnac is a smooth, high quality brandy. Made in France, this full flavored Armagnac boasts a rich tradition that dates back to 1559 when St. Vivant de la Salle produced the first bottle of Armagnac Brandy. St. Vivant de la Salle, a lord who owned a number of vineyards in Gascony, burned the first drops of a liquor which he then distilled and aged in barrels made from black oak from the forest surrounding his chateau.

The production of Armanacs SAINT-VIVANT is subject to the requirements of the Armagnac DOC, established in 1936, which promotes a unique and secular know-how. They are made from selected grapes (Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche, Bacchus), grown in the best regions: Bas-Armagnac with its elegant and energetic character, and Ténarèze with its ardent aromas and body. Its long aging in barrels of local black oak allows them to develop fragrances of vanilla, prunes, violets and spices, as well as a nice amber color with touches of mahogany.

Armagnac is produced in the Gascony region of Southwest France and is among the earliest of spirits produced, prescribed over the last 700 years for a myriad of therapeutic benefits. Owing to its ancient heritage, the production method is much simpler than that of its cousin, Cognac, with just a single distillation through a column still prior to barrel aging. This yields a spirit that is generally more flavorful and fragrant than other Brandies.
