From Cognac to Armagnac

#WineTrip

Cognac, Saint-Sylvestre-sur-Lot, Auch

A liquors testing trip
6days/7nights from €4.175

From Cognac to Armagnac

Eau-de-vie (in Latin aqua vitae) is a product of the distillation of a weakly alcoholic liquid produced from wine, fruit, rhizomes or grains.

The Cognac and Armagnac soils are separated by about 300 kilometers. So we can expect significant differences in soils. Armagnac is part of a natural triangle with three departments: the Gers in its entirety, part of the lot and Garonne and part of the Landes.
But we will discover too the Ente plum liquor between power and subtlety. The liqueur of plums can be tasted alone or serve as an ingredient for cocktails, salty dishes, cakes...

DAY 1, Friday - Arrival in Cognac.
Dinner

DAY 2, Saturday - Discovery of the Cognac.
Cognac was created by vintners wishing to export their low alcohol white wine to England and Holland. They had the idea of distilling it to export it better. With aging in oak, its success became total in Holland which called this brandy "brandewijn", from which the word "brandy" arose. The success of Cognac comes from the fact that it is an export market (90%) because of its location close to the port of La Rochelle: it is the trade treaty between France and England in 1860 under the authority of Napoleon III which allowed Cognac an exponential growth. Brunch. Cognac testing. Dinner.

Day 3, Sunday - Go to Lot-et-Garonne.
Arrival to the hotel. Dinner.

Day 4, Monday - Discovery of Ente plum liquor.
This specialty with prunes is produced on the Ferme du Lacay in his laboratory. Created from the recipes of a notebook of a great-grandmother of the family. Go back to the hotel. Dinner.

Day 5, Tuesday - Go to Gers.
Arrival to the hotel. Dinner.

Day 6, Wednesday - Discovery of the Armagnac
Armagnac is one of the oldest eaux-de-vie. It exists since the beginning of the 15th century and according to some historians it dates from the 13th century. Its long history merges with that of Gascony d'Artagnan and is totally in keeping with the French historical and gastronomic heritage. Go back to the hotel. Dinner.
