Jean-Philippe Brunello co-founded the family business, Artez, in 1995, on 12 hectares (30 acres) of land located in the Western part of the Bas Armagnac, although the eaux de vie have been produced at this distillery for many decades.
Jean-Philippe developed a passion for Armagnac and spirits from an early age due to his grandfather, a cellar master in Ognoas.
This naturally delicious liqueur is made by macerating 100% Madagascar Vanilla beans in barrels of young Bas-Armagnac for several months. After a touch of sugar is added, this tasty blend is allowed to rest before it is carefully filtered and bottled at 40% ABV.
If you liked Navan you will love Arvani!
If you like real vanilla taste, this is where you’ll find it. Bartenders finally have a pure vanilla spirit for creating tasty vanilla cocktails. It can also be served straight up, chilled or on the rocks.
4 stars / Highly Recommended!
"Mahogany color; very good clarity. Smells very nicely of Madagascar vanilla bean, honeysuckle, and brown sugar in the first sniffs... Entry is dense, intensely vanilla bean-like and yet there is clear evidence of the spirit base; midpalate is rich, but not unctuous, beany without being metallic, and balanced. Aftertaste is long, bitter-sweet, and honeyed. " (Paul Pacult, The New Kindred Spirits 2021)
