An incredibly rare old armagnac from the 1900 vintage, bottled probably some time in the early-to-mid 1990s. Baptiste Gélas founded his house in Bas Armagnac in 1865 after buying his father William's cooperage business. Interestingly, the Gélas family is descended from famous musketeer D'Artagnan.
For obvious reasons it's extremely difficult to find any wartime vintages of anything from France, so it's a rare privilege for us to have this 1914 armagnac from the prestigious Gélas house. The term 'liquid history' is somewhat overused, but we think this qualifies at a canter.
