Delord 25 Year Bas-Armagnac has a subtle and complex nose with hints of nuts, fruit, and chocolate. The attack bursts with flavors of dates, figs, toffee, caramel, and chewy leather that fade to hints of chocolate and finish with notes of cashews, hazelnuts, and vanilla. Although the caramel, honey, and chocolate notes are slightly reminiscent of bourbon and scotch, the flavor is uniquely different.

After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and fermented before distilling in a single pass through Delord's antique Sier alembic stills. The stills are incredibly small, producing only 30 liters per hour, and are operated at low temperatures to preserve more of the flavors and fatty acids.

Once distilled, the Bas-Armagnac is aged for a minimum of 25 years in Maison Delord's cellars. The cellars hold just over 1,000 casks at any given tiem, the oldest of which are housed in a special area known as "Paradise"; the oldest cask dates back to 1900. After its quarter-century beauty rest, the Bas-Armagnac is brought to proof before each bottle is filled and sealed with wax.

Born in 1875, Prosper Delord started business as an itinerant distiller. He gained a reputation for his dedication and expertise by carting his traveling pot to the farms in the Bas Armagnac region. When his son Gaston took over in 1925 he officially founded the company and established operations on a permanent site in Lannepax.

Today, great-grandsons Jerome and Sylvain carry on the same tradition, having established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a prime 20 hectare vineyard in the heart of the Bas Armagnac, they have been distilling, ageing and blending their eaux-de-vie the exact same way their great-grandfather did.
