The recipe for the development of Cassagnac remains a secret, but notes of chocolate and caramel are easily recognized. The Sempe cellar master is the only person allowed to proceed to the delicate blending of milky cream and Sempe Armagnac, which is a key moment in the production of the liquor. Faithful to the tradition, the cellar master blends every batch of cream and Armagnac by hand.
|The history of the Armagnac region, in the south west of France, is linked since more than 1000 years with the French Gastronomy way of life. It is in this context that in the Chateau de Cassaigne in the small village of the same name, that one day Mr. Roques who was running the Chateau, created one of the most soft and tasty drink from Gascony. Indeed in the Gascony region a traditional dessert is to put on warm apple pie, a little bit of cream, and some Armagnac that bring softness and a powerful spirit taste to the dessert. The taste of the VSOP Armagnac mixed with cream and sugar was so nice that mister Roques decided to try to make it in a bottle ready to be used for the next dinner. With the time, the taste of this creamy Armagnac became more popular than the dessert itself and people starts to drink Armagnac mixed with sugar, caramel and cream. The very first Cassagnac appears!
Nowadays, with the help of the great Armagnac Sempe production and facilities, Cassagnac is produced in the heart of the Gascony region and start to be released and exported all over the world.
