The Armagnac for cocktails !! A true craft Spirit from Gascony. Land of troubadours, poets and musketeers.
We are the Underdog, a small family business, launched in 2016 by two "Beaus-Frères", Gianni and Cesar. We craft Armagnac, a white wine based spirit with roots dating from the 14th century. We defy the established idea of the Category by creating a new standard of super premium Armagnac, one that will make bartenders proud to pour for the next 700 years.
We are introducing Armagnac to the world with an obsessive attention to detail, meticulous craftsmanship, groundbreaking innovation, and inspirational simplicity. We make our Armagnacs with an emphasis on clarity of flavor.
Our Story begun in 2000 when we started playing with a very old small alembic that was sitting at the back of the family house in the Bas Armagnac region. In 2013, Cesar (VP of a big French tech company) striving for happiness, left the big corporation and moved to the family house. Being curious about Armagnac, but lacking the knowledge and experience he asked Gianni (Sommelier, trader of wines & spirits and owner of Madeo, in Los Angeles) to join the adventure. Since then our quest is to show the world that Armagnac is the greatest spirit of France.
Inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac, Gianni's vision was to create the best possible spirit within a bottle. A spirit that tells the story of Armagnac with its unique heritage, and the masterful crafting that goes into the creation of each of our premium Armagnac's
Cyrano de Bergerac, the complicated historical figure who famously loved Armagnac above all other brandies, is a famous French play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand. Cyrano is a poet and a musketeer, a brawler and an incurable romantic hero. The first among men and totally lost among women. Blessed with being brilliant at everything, cursed by having the biggest nose in all of France. Cyrano is hopelessly in love with Roxane, but he is too ashamed to confess his love for fear of rejection, so instead he becomes her friend. Christian, a young handsome Captain catches Roxane's eye. She begs Cyrano to keep him safe. With his mighty heart breaking, Cyrano sets about his task, using his unique skills as a poet, writing for Christian ravishing love letters to Roxane, without her realizing that it's Cyrano's words she falls for. He is heroic, romantic, and idealistic, combining outstanding courage, sword-fighting skill, resourcefulness, and a distinct sense of honor and justice. Cyrano defies arrogant authority and oppressive orders. He values honor, faith, morality and duty, and he loves Armagnac.
