Armagnac is native to the region of Gascony, France. It benefits from a "Appeliation d'Origine Contrôlée" (AOC) which divides it into four sub appellations which concern the distillates of less than one year: Bas-Armagnac, Ténarèze and Haut-Armagnac and Blanche d'Armagnac which is not spent under aging wood. Armagnac differs from Cognac by its region and methods of manufacture. Indeed, the Armagnac is distilled in column, the cognac him, is distilled in iron still. The great grapes used are the folle blanche, colombards, baco and ugni blanc.
