BHAKTA Single Vintage Armagnac

The BHAKTA Spirits Vintage Library offers single vintages of Armagnac reaching back through nearly every year since 1868. Each year captures and expresses the unique climate conditions, the technique of different distillers, and the compounding intricacies of time spent in both wood and glass. BHAKTA Armagnac grows in complexity and nuance the longer it is aged. BHAKTA Vintages represent the pinnacle of the Armagnac category – no other producer can boast the same depth and variety.

The Last Bastion of Craft

You could say that Armagnac is the last truly craft spirit known to man—the elegant, alchemical product of alembic stills which were patented and perfected in 1818.
The heir to more than 700 years of tradition, Armagnac’s first mention in the historical record dates to 1310, when Cardinal Vital Dufour extolled brandy’s many virtues—namely that it “enlivens the spirit,” “recalls the past to memory,” “renders men joyous, and “preserves youth and delays senility.” 

The Year 1946

Charles de Gaulle resigns as president of France. Truman officially ends WW2 hostilities. Italy is declared a republic. It’s a Wonderful Life premieres in New York City. At Nuremberg, convicted war criminal Hermann Göring poisons himself two hours before his execution. The company that would become Chick-fil-A is founded. United States conducts nuclear weapon tests on Micronesia’s Bikini Atoll; coincidentally, the first bikini swimsuit is modeled in Paris four days later.

HOW TO DRINK IT

  • "Hands down the best booze to drink right now."

  • "Based on the blend we tried, exquisite. Hits the mark."

  • "A superb brandy. Extraordinarily old, yet still manages to retain a freshness and fruitiness that belies its age."

  • "As this beauty of a bottling shows, brandy of this age is still alive, complex, and gorgeous."

  • “While we’ve found the liquid itself rich and complex, the age statements alone are enough to get a conversation started. . .”

  • "BHAKTA represents an elegant and melodious mixing of 38 barrels' worth of exceedingly rare juice."
