The climate and the soil, as well as the grape varieties and also the winemaking are the decisive quality features of the Armagnac. The decisive criterion is and remains the distillation process as well as the subsequent treatment of the distillate, as well as the maturation, if necessary the waste, which, however, rarely occurs with vintage Armagnac. Continuous distillation has been prescribed by law for Armagnac distilling since 1936. The furnace must have a continuous flow and be provided with double or triple stills placed one on top of the other. It must not contain a rectification device and the alcohol content of the distillate must not exceed 63%. This process guarantees the preservation of the flavors and the bouquet,

For this reason, Armagnac does not deserve to be called the little brother of cognac. It is neither of inferior quality nor is it made with less care. On the contrary, Armagnac is much more traditional than its competitor Cognac, it is protected by the state, like Cognac, and appeared for the first time in documents by name as early as 1461, making it France's oldest quality brandy.

Armagnac may only be produced from the Bas-Armagnac, Haut-Armagnac and Teneraze regions. As with cognac, it is also exclusively made from white grapes. The Armagnac may only be distilled between the months of October and the end of March. Storage and delivery take place in Limousin barrels. The taste is determined by the aroma of plums, violets or hazelnuts. It is drunk from room-warm swivel glasses. 

The vintage plays a very important role in Armagnac. The year numbers are absolutely trustworthy, the law also allows blends, but stipulates that the youngest part is noted on the label, so that does not offer any special incentive to bring vintage blends onto the market and is therefore hardly accepted.
