Born in 1875, Prosper Delord started out as an itinerant distiller. He gained a reputation for his dedication and expertise by carting his traveling pot still around to farms in the Bas Armagnac region. Later, he married Marie Duffau and in 1925 they officially founded the company with their son Gaston. They established the business as a permanent site in Lannepax.
Today, great grandsons Jérôme and Sylvain carry on the same tradition and have established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a prime 44-hectare vineyard in the heart of Bas Armagnac, (widely known as the 1st Cru), they have been distilling, aging and blending their eau de vie in the exact same way their great grandfather: using high-quality fruit, harvested from the best soils in Bas Armagnac; organic farming practices; slow and low distillation, and aging in a unique combination of Gascon and Limousin oak.
