Born in 1875, Prosper Delord started the company 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. He later married Marie Duffau and in 1925, they officially founded the company with their son Gaston and established the business as a permanent site in Lannepax. Today, grandsons Pierre and Jacques carry on the same tradition, having established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a 20 hectare vineyard in the heart of the Bas Armagnac (widely known as the 1st Cru), they have been distilling, aging and blending their eaux-de-vie the exact same way their grandfather did and only use the highest quality fruit from the best soil in the Bas Armagnac with no pesticides or fertilizers.
