What is National Armagnac Day?
National Armagnac Day is a celebration of Armagnac, an alcoholic drink similar to Cognac.
Made in the Armagnac region of France, the spirit’s namesake, Armagnac is a singly distilled brandy. The oldest brandy to be distilled in France, it is made from white grapes, distilled in column stills, and aged in oak barrels. Due to the differences in the distillation process, it is more robust, fragrant, and flavorful in taste than the better-known and lighter-tasting Cognac. Those who enjoy drinking bourbon may find Armagnac to be a welcome transition into brandy drinking.
