Armagnac-Delord-Prosper-Delord

Prosper Delord

In 1893, Prosper Delord founded the house in Lannepax. He was a traveling distiller who fell in love with 'Eau de Vie' of the Armagnac. Since then, the company has passed from father to son, and the fourth generation has been working in the family business. The location of the distillery is in the village of Lannepax, in the Bas-Armagnac.

Great-grandsons

Today, great-grandsons Jerome and Sylvain carry on the same tradition, having established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a prime 30-hectare vineyard in the heart of the Bas Armagnac, (widely known as the 1st Cru), they have been distilling, aging and blending their eaux-de-vie the same way their great-grandfather did. Their aging cellars contain Armagnacs dating back to 1904.

Touring the distillery

When touring the distillery and aging cellars, it feels as if time has stopped and you almost expect to see grandfather Prosper, coming around the corner pulling his itinerant pot still with the help of his two cows.

Distillation

The distillation is the most important and fascinating part in the production of Armagnac and always happens from the beginning of November until the end of December. Armagnac is a wine distillate similar to Cognac, full of flavor with tonnes of mushroom, crippled wood, moist earth, and herbs.
