Armagnac Samples

Armagnac, primarily produced in the Gascony region, is renowned for its rich, full-bodied character, which is captured neatly in these meticulously curated 3cl samples. Unlike its more famous cousin, Cognac, Armagnac typically undergoes a single, continuous distillation process in column stills before being aged in oak barrels. This method imparts a robust intensity and complexity to the spirit that is appreciated by connoisseurs.

The 3cl format is particularly appealing for those looking to expand their palate without the commitment of purchasing a full-sized bottle. Each sample is a journey through the terroir of its origin, offering a taste profile that can range from bold and spicy to smooth and fruity, depending on the age and blend. The variance between vintages and producers can be profound, given that the region boasts a variety of grapes, including Ugni Blanc, Baco Blanc, Folle Blanche, and Colombard, which contribute to the diversity of flavour.

Drinks by the Dram's selection includes offerings from across the Armagnac appellations, including Bas-Armagnac, known for its finesse and fruitiness, and Ténarèze, where the spirit often has a more assertive and earthy profile. This variety allows enthusiasts to compare and contrast the different styles and nuances that Armagnac presents.

For those intrigued by the ageing process, the samples also provide a means to experience how Armagnac evolves over time. The impact of the wood, the slow oxidation over the years, and the blending skills of the maître de chai (cellar master) are all reflected in these small servings.
