The AOC Armagnac and Cognac terroirs
Armagnac is produced in the South-West of France (the Gers department, the East of the Landes and the South of the Lot-et-Garonne) whereas Cognac is produced 300 km further North (Charente, Charente-Maritime, part of the Dordogne and Deux-Sèvres).
The terroirs are distinguished by their soils and climate, which give their brandy their typical character. The Cognac soil is mainly limestone, while the Armagnac soil is sandy, clayey-siliceous and clayey-limestone. The Armagnac region has a continental climate, while the Cognac region has a more oceanic climate.
