All Clos Martin Armagnacs are produced with a traditional savoir-faire that gives their products a pure style. All Clos Martin Armagnacs are produced using small traditional stills to capture the floral and lively aromas of the local grape varieties.
These precious liquids are aged in demi-muids or casks, and are crafted mainly from winegrowers cellars until they are ready to see the light again. These rare eaux-de-vie, supplied by a small group of local winegrowers, express the character of the people from Gascony, forged under the influence of the Pyrenees Mountains: Honesty, Pride, and Generosity.
