Armagnac GELAS Sélection Spécial
In 1865, Guillaume Gélas, a respected barrel maker, bequeathed his business to his son Baptiste. Shortly after creating the Maison Gélas. He duly moved into the premises currently occupied by the firm. Then embarked on the business of making and selling Armagnacs.
After the Second World War, Pierre Gélas lent the family firm an international dimension. He revolutionized his times by offering on an exclusive basis Armagnacs hailing from the terroirs or local regions of Bas Armagnac and La Ténarèze, at their natural degree of ageing, without reduction.
Pierre’s son Philippe, represents the fourth generation of the Gélas family to take the reins. He has been running the firm since late 2001. He is carrying on the innovative spirit of his forebears by introducing single varietal Armagnacs. Thus asserting the differentness of the Maison Gélas.
