What is the French “Water of Life”

Armagnac Feature- Baron de Sigognac:

In the spirit (no pun intended) of uncovering secret gems, my story is about Armagnac. I love that brandy. Armagnac is my spirit of choice. If there is one spirit alcohol you need to sample in life- this is it.

My introduction to Armagnac came through the WSET Diploma courses I took in Vancouver, Canada. Admittedly, aside from drinking Vodka as a University student, I never took much interest in spirits prior to the course. That is until the “Cognac vs Armagnac” day at school.
