The Maison Gélas, created in 1865 by Baptiste Gélas, a barrel maker’s son, has been a family business for 150 years, and is Gascon heart and soul. It will take you through the different crafts and trades that have given birth not only to outstanding, vintage Bas Armagnacs, aged in casks in its chais or special storehouses, but also to a range of eaux-de-vie resulting from both know-how and a love of perfection. The Maison Gélas offers you the key to its nook of paradise, and will initiate you in the magic of ageing. Gelas was born into liqueurs before it became one of the best houses of Armagnac with a collection of many old vintages, to make Armagnac Castarede jealous. Gelas is also famous for its single varietal Armagnacs defining the big differences between Baco, Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche. He also experiments with great success one year or more cask finished Armagnacs in Jurançon, Marsala, Pacherenc, Port, Sauternes, Sherry, and lately in the famous Australian De Bortoli Noble One and Black Noble casks.
