The Armagnac House "Armagnac Samalens SA" in Laujuzan (Gers) was founded in 1882 by Jean Samalens. The Armagnac are produced in the VSOP qualities with seven to eight year maturation, Napoleon (10 to 12 years), Rare (over 11 years) and Reserve Imperial XO (10 to 15 years). Very special products are the brands Crystal Relique, Relique d'Age Inconnu (15 to 20 years), Vieille Relique and Relique Ancestrale (with 25% of the exceptional vintage 1891) assembled from very old distillates. The absolute crowning glory is Relique du Siecle 100 Ans, which was assembled in 1957 and has been resting in glass vessels since then. The most recently used distillate is over 100 years old.
