The Master’s Cask

The Master’s Cask

A rare and exclusive 2003 Single Cask ARMAGNAC

From the 100% Baco cepage this unique Bas Armagnac Chateau de Laubade 2003 is offered to the Livery – available up to Easter 2020.

At 48.9% cask strength this is a fantastic example from an historic spirit producing region and shows the class and heritage of this lovely area in the Gers in south western France. There are only 100 bottles available of this rare and collectable Armagnac and I thank Chateau de Laubade for donating this cask to the Worshipful Company of Distillers. All proceeds will go to our charitable fund.

Buy early to secure your bottle – first come first served!
