Is Armagnac the same as Cognac?
Armagnac and Cognac are two eaux de vie made from wine aged in oak barrels and produced exclusively in France. Both Armagnac and Cognac are French eaux de vie under the AOC designation, which means that they cannot be produced outside of the region which bears their name. They are distinguished by the way in which they are made, as well as their distinctive taste. Armagnac is an exceptional product with an authentic traditional and artisanal character.
