Situated in the Bas Armagnac region, Southern Western France (South East of Bordeaux), awards-winning Maison Delord was founded in 1893 by roving distiller Prosper Delord (he carried a pot-still with him while traveling to different farms through the region). Today, Jerome and Sylvain Delord — Prosper Delord’s great grandsons — manage the prime 42 hectare estate located in the western part of Bas Armagnac, widely known as the “First Cru.” The Delord brothers grow Ugni Blanc (56% - brings the structure), Colombard  (24% - Brings herbal aromas), Baco (14% - brings roundness) and Folle Blanche (6% - brings floral notes) grapes without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. The grapes are vinified separately to produce aromatic and acidic wines. Maison Delord is one of the only Armagnac houses to use both distillation methods:  two column stills equipped with particular plates called “spider plates for the production of old Armagnac and two double distillation stills for younger eaux de vies. Delord 25 Year Old Bas-Armagnac earned a score of 96 points from Wine Enthusiast and five stars from F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal, which recognized it as one of the top 10 greatest spirits of all time.
