Janneau is to double Armagnac production capacity at its Condom distillery.

The house will up its pure alcohol output to 5,000 hectolitres over Armagnac's four-month distillation season, Janneau said today. The brandy, made in south west France's Armagnac region, must be distilled between November and February to qualify for appellation d’origine Armagnac status.

Janneau said the capacity upgrade is an investment “in the future of Armagnac”.

Last year, Janneau launched three vintages from the Chinese year of the dragon.
