A Life Lover’s Guide to Armagnac by Geoff James is a passionate look at the region of Armagnac and the drink named after it. He set out in 2011 to visit the region and experience the culture surrounding the drink for himself and realised that there was very little in the way of Armagnac guide books that cater to English speakers. He decided then that his trip would be the perfect opportunity to completely immerse himself in the history of the region and the production process of the drink, using the knowledge and experience gained to write an English Armagnac guide book to help others who wish to visit the region for themselves.
This Armagnac book touches on the history of Armagnac dating back to the thirteenth century and details the process behind the production and distillation of this wonderful brandy. The three main production areas Bas Armagnac, Tenereze & Haut Armagnac each have their own sections in which they are the focus. In these Geoff writes about his experiences visiting the many producers in these areas and makes some recommendations to his readers.
