BHAKTA 50 Armagnac Brandy

The Bhakta 50 Collection

Fifty years at its youngest—and more than one hundred fifty at its oldest—BHAKTA 50, the flagship offering of BHAKTA Spirits, carries jaw-dropping age statements. Only 38 barrels are ever produced, each a blend of 8 Armagnac vintages spanning from 1868 to 1970, and finished in a Scotch Whisky cask. Each barrel is named after a figure in history that we pay tribute to with that specific blend.

Our stocks come from Château Bhakta, created following Raj’s Bhakta’s 2019 purchase of the esteemed Maison Ryst-Dupeyron and their Armagnac holdings. Blending is done at the château by our multi-generational master blenders. The finishing barrels for BHAKTA 50 are traditional French oak casks conditioned with Islay whiskey, which allows the boldness of Scotch to meld with the floral richness of the Armagnac, providing layers of complexity and unmistakable identity.
