The original Blanche Armagnac. In 1982, Patrick de Montal first opted to bottle the freshly distilled wine coming from the still - prior to being officially allowed to use the name Armagnac - and called it "Fine Blanche". Patrick then started working with the French government to expand the AOC, Blanche Armagnac being allowed on the label in 2005.
This unaged spirit has become the darling of the craft cocktail bartender - a unique substitute for Vodka, Gin, Rum and other classic white spirits, but bringing the full character of the fresh wine. Distilled entirely from wines produced from their own vines, in the extremely small and rare sub-region of Haut Armagnac. A distinctive, unique and transformative ingredient, to be enjoyed chilled neat, with tonic, or in any number of creative cocktail application.
Chateau Arton presents a line of entirely estate grown Armagnacs coming from the rare and distinctive Haut Appellation. “Grown, not produced” and created by two icons in the world of Armagnac, Patrick de Montal and his wife Victoire de Montesquiou at their home near Lectoure, France. From vines they planted in the 1970's, pursuing a lifelong dream to one day own their own vineyards.
In 2017, Château Arton was awarded the highest honor in France – The Prix d’Excellence, by the French Ministry of Agriculture. Over 22,000 products were submitted – Arton having been selected as the best Brandy, not just Armagnac, in all of France.
