BHAKTA 1978 Armagnac

BHAKTA 1978 Armagnac

The pure distillation of the year 1978 

 BHAKTA 1978 shows a nose of blackcurrant, toasted bread, roasted meat, and figs, followed by a mellow palate of caramel, nuts, and prunes packed with spices. In history, 1978 saw the release of Animal House, the opening of the first Home Depot (and Atlantic City’s first casino as well), and the introduction of Coors Light, Cabbage Patch Kids, and Reese’s Pieces.

BHAKTA 1978 Armagnac
The BHAKTA Spirits Vintage Library

Offering single vintages of Armagnac reaching back through nearly every year since 1868. Each year captures and expresses the unique climate conditions, the technique of different distillers, and the compounding intricacies of time spent in both wood and glass.

The Finest Stocks

All of our Single Vintage Armagnacs come from Chateau BHAKTA in Condom, France

After a harvest from the vineyards in the Armagnac region and distillation in wood-fired alembic stills, the long aging process in French Oak barrels begins.

Our cellarmaster, Bernard, who has tended the Chateau’s stocks for over 50 years, ensures each vintage is aged to perfection.

How to drink it

“In this vintage paradigm, every release is special, limited in quantity — there’s only so much of any given spirit made in any given year.”
“You don’t have to love brandy to love this. . . Terrific sipping and thus an epic preview of things to come from the nascent producer.”
