Described by the brand as being “as dry as a single malt whisky, but with highly subtle floral aromas and astonishing complexity”, the new Single de Samalens range comes in 8, 12 and 15YO flavours.
Produced using wines made with a single variety of grape, Ugni Blane, the vinification combines two different methods of distillation (single and double). This aims to obtain a spirit as dry and rich as whisky.
Founded in 1882, the Maison Samalens is located in Bas-Armagnac and houses the largest distillery in the region with 4 single and 4 pot stills. Its stock of hundred-year old brandies is one of the largest in the world.
Single de Samalens armagnac is available from Bibendum. Contact Nick Rodgers on 0207 449 4099 for more information.
