About this spirit:

BHAKTA 50 is a limited edition 50-year Armagnac collection for spirit enthusiasts seeking the best spirits in the world.

When the brand first started, we created 38 single barrels, each a blend of Armagnac vintages from our single vintage library spanning 1868 - 1970, giving you the opportunity to taste spirits distilled in the 19th century.

A brief finish in a Scotch Islay cask makes it one of the most unique spirits collectibles you will find anywhere. Sampling this astounding array of historic vintages involves a journey across the twists and turns of time—and offers a unique glimpse into the mind of our founder, Raj Peter Bhakta.

In 1927, Charles Lindbergh boarded the Spirit of St. Louis, a single-engine monoplane, and took off for the first-ever nonstop flight from New York to Paris. During his 33.5-hour odyssey, Lindbergh encountered storms, heavy seas – flying just 10 feet over the ocean at times – and often navigated by dead-reckoning due to a lack of navigational equipment. This barrel finds 1927, and we toast the indomitable American spirit with it.

"This is a blend of eight Armagnacs distilled from 1868 through 1970, and finished in a Scotch Islay whisky cask. The result is a deep nut-brown hue and bold aromas of walnut, leather and a hint of toffee. The dry palate echoes those notes, layering on oak, parchment and a hint of espresso, finishing long with a puff of smoke and black pepper heat."
