Delord was founded in 1932 by the sons of a travelling distiller, who would go from farm to farm helping the owners turn their grapes into eau de vie. All of that know-how and tradition has been passed down through the generations. Today, this small, family-owned and operated distillery continues to select, blend, and craft superb French Armagnacs out of its distillery in southwestern France.
Bas Armagnac 15 Year Old Delord is a relatively young release from the brand, but shows off all the signature flavour that the company is known for. It is very aromatic and balanced. With the handwritten bottles, wax seals, and wooden crates, this brand takes you back to a time when everything had more charm.
Made using eau de vie that have been aged for a minimum of 15 years, this is a grand Armagnac that is packed with the rich flavours of fruit, oak, leather, and spice. While Cognacs have taken the world by storm, Armagnacs have been around for longer and generally offer more flavour, complexity, and body than their Cognac siblings. So, if you love brandy and have not yet tried this local French favourite, Bas Armagnac 15 Year Old Delord is a great entry point into the Armagnac world.
Description of Bas-Armagnac 15 Year old Delord
Bas-Armagnac 15 Year old Delord (Ugni Blanc)
It was Prosper Delord, a travelling distiller, who initially fell in love with the magnificent eau-de-vie of Armagnac. In 1893, he founded the house of Delord that became the Armagnac Delord Brothers, when his two sons Gaston and Georges took over the alambic still and followed in their father's footsteps with the same passion for Armagnac. Today, Gaston's sons Jacques and Pierre Delord continue the family tradition, along with the next generation, Jerome and Sylvain.
