The first brandy in France

Whilst it looks like a Mexican standoff setting, it really is the France from a long time ago. Houses dated from the 1300s surround this plaza.
In this place Armagnac is made, a type of fortified wine – thus made from grapes- and is the oldest form of brandy ever made. A single distilled alcohol that predates cognac by 150 years.
