Baron d'Artigues

Situated in the South West of France in the Gers, in the little village of Nogaro is the oldest firm in the region, Baron d'Artigues, now run by Francoise and Jean-Pierre Dartigalongue. There is also an impressive museum on the site, well worth a visit. Armagnac is mostly made a grape called with Ugni Blanc, and is distilled only once and aged in a different wood, therefore achieving a more rustic and fuller finish than Cognac.
