An evening high in spirits !

It was about 9.30 pm when I left the Radisson blu hotel after an enjoyable Cognac & Armagnac tasting ! Where ? : 63 rue Lucien Faure 33300 Bordeaux (Stop “Cité du Vin” with tram B)

COGNAC

1) REMY MARTIN – Amongst the most famous ones..

I guess you have heard about Remy Martin already…? A famous one, amongst other very famous Cognac houses such as Hennessy, Courvoisier (oh…I have a good friend who is keen on that one !), Martell, Hine, Louis Royer, Frapin, etc

2) Distillerie des Moisans

ARMAGNAC

You might know better Cognac than Armagnac, however you should also try this spirit.. I know it already but I enjoyed tasting the Armagnacs DELORD with Jérôme. His great grandfather Prosper started the story in 1893. As a travelling distiller and cellar master he took his alambic from farm to farm, transforming white wine into Armagnac.. I’ll write you an article later on about Armagnac (and differences with Cognac too)

1) DELORD

Armagnac DELORD : Rue principale – 32 190 Lannepax †

2) CHATEAU GARREAU

Château GARREAU – 40240 Labastide d’Armagnac

A spirits’ tasting with a great view is always a bonus ! (also because it is nice to get fresh air at some point…I wonder why.. )
