In 1838, Pascal Dartigalongue, born to a family of wine growers, established himself in Nogaro where he founded his house of Armagnac. His Armagnac, sold in casks, is exported to Belgium, Holland, England and the USA via the port of Bayonne. His son Joseph took over the flourishing business, exported by rail and purchased the Lacroutz estate in Salles-d’Armagnac.
His two sons André and Henri developed the estate’s production and set up a representation of the Dartigalongue house in Paris. Both victims of the war of 1914-1918, Pierre, the son of Henri, managed the family business and developed bottle sales in France and for export, especially in United States.
Now his daughter, Françoise Dartigalongue, is holding the reins and offers a complete range of BLENDS, from VSOP to 30 years, and very old VINTAGES reserves of Bas Armagnac.
Lastly Benoît joined the familial team, who travels across the world to meet connoisseurs of the nicest eau-de-vie, continuing the work made by the 5 generation of Armagnac holders.
In their Armagnac museum that has housed the archives of the house since 1838, you are given an introduction to the history and passion behind this prestigious house and Armagnac dating back to 1829. Over 170 years of history.
