Castarede is the oldest trading house in the region, established in 1832 by ancestors of the current owners.

The armagnac is produced at Chateau de Maniban, situated in the heart of the Bas-Armagnac region just to the south of Mauleon - d’Armagnac. This edition was distilled in 1978 from Ugni blanc, Folle Blanche, Colombard and Baco 22 A grapes.

Tasting note: Deep brassy gold. Gorgeous purity to the bouquet including notes of stewed orchard fruits, dried fig, vanilla bean, cedar, cigar box and cocoa. Drier style Armagnac with pepper, prune and fig in a finely tannic delivery. Cedary-oak and cigar box run through the aftertaste. Excellent persistence. 40% Alc./Vol.
