Bhakta is changing the game once more, bringing together two worlds for a spirit that is both ancient and brand new. A marriage of Armagnacs from vintages between 1868 and 1970, then finished in Islay casks for a whisper of smoke, this complex spirit is simply sublime and unlike anything on your shelf right now.
We remain in awe of the multitalented. Theobald of Navarre was at once a master diplomat, lutist, and grandfather to Champagne wine. After kindling the Baron’s Crusade on the Pope’s whim, he sang his way to Damascus and breezed through negotiations. He also selected Chardonnay grapes to bring home to France for the first time. These grapes have fed French wine & brandy traditions for generations since… Nose of juicy blood orange, overripened on the grass from the sun's beating rays. Rich palate of hazelnut, vanilla, treacle, and candied prune. A festive cake of fruit and nuts, with a touch of holiday spice. Persistent finish of peat and cinnamon.
