The marc is diffused 3 to 5 days in water that has been made mild.
The obtained liquid is then continuously distilled in Armagnac copper stills.
Only the heart of the distillate that has 72% volume (of alcohol) is selected.
A part of the marc is directly distilled with the calenders. A judicious blend of these is what gives “Arbeau-de-Vie its remarkable characteristic.
This eau-de-vie is reduced to 40% volume with pure spring water or distilled water.
The ageing lasts 8 months in vats.
The hue is crystal-clear and the liquid leaves fat and steady marks on the glass.
The nose is full of grapes that reveal a slight perfume of white flowers and pears.
In the mouth, after the alcohol's hot sensation, fresh grapes and pears return.

This eau-de-vie is a light and fresh liqueur, that will put life and a new twist into all manner of cocktails.
