BHAKTA 1979 Armagnac

BHAKTA 1979 Armagnac

The pure distillation of the year 1979 

From the largest Armagnac harvest on record — and a personal favorite of the BHAKTA Spirits Team. BHAKTA 1979 shows fruit-forward notes of plum jam, Sherry, Madeira, and moss on the nose, followed by textured layers of overripe apples and pears on the palate. In history, 1979 was defined by the debut of the McDonald’s Happy Meal, the election of Margaret Thatcher as Great Britain’s first female Prime Minister, and Russia’s ill-fated invasion of Afghanistan.

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.”
