The Montesquiou family has been firmly rooted in the soil of Gascony since 1040. It counts among its members the famous Gascony musketeer d'Artagnan, musketeer of the King of France. The bottle gourd-shaped, symbolic of the Montesquiou range, directly refers to this legacy.
Armagnac is the oldest French brandy. Already in 1310, the prior of Eauze, Cardinal Vital Dufour, extolled this "burning water", born from the distillation of wines from Gascony soils.
It is in Eauze, ancient medieval village, which are assembled since decades the subtle distillates Montesquiou House, from the most prestigious vineyards in the most prestigious terroirs of Armagnac: the Bas Armagnac and La Ténarèze.
The blends have been specially created with, and for, mixologists. Marquis Fine and Reserve are blended from eaux-de-vie with subtly integrated wood notes, allowing the explosive fruit aromas to come through. This enables the spirits to add presence and depth to mixologists’ creations.
