Shortly after settling in Lannepax in the heart of Armagnac country with his wife and two sons in 1883, Jean Cavé opened the doors of his small distillery. A grape-grower already, Cavé began a generations-long quest to perfect their growing, distilling, and aging methods over more than a century.
The team at Jean Cavé are still guided by Henry Cavé, the fourth generation of the family. With Henry at the helm, the distillery bene ts from generations of knowledge, as well as a shared sense of tradition and purpose. This has allowed them to retain continuity and an enduring sense of place. Today, with more than one hundred thirty vintages of Armagnac in their cellar, they have a stock of old bottles that few other houses can match and can o er a wide range of bottlings that will delight newcomers to this spirit, as well as delight serious collectors and a cionados.
Once per year, Jean Cavé opens their extensive library of older vintages to us.
