Armagnac

Like Cognac, Armagnac is grape brandy made in a particular region in France, though this region is a bit further to the south. Armagnac uses the same grapes as Cognac, plus the addition of baco blanc. More notably, Armagnac is not pot distilled but rather is distilled in column stills, and it is only distilled once instead of twice. Because of these factors, Armagnac is typically a bit less fruity and more floral than Cognac. Armagnac uses similar VS/VSOP/XO designations for age as Cognac.
