- Ugni Blanc Grapes
- Folle Blanche Grapes

ODVI’s bright peppery, fruity character is a great base for a Mule, as it doesn’t allow itself to be overpowered by the lime and ginger of the mix. Pour 50 ml of ODVI, 20 ml of fresh lime juice, and 20 ml of vine peach liqueur into a shaker with a handful of ice cubes. Shake well, then pour into a highball glass. Fill with ice cubes and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a sliver of ginger or a lemon slice, and enjoy all of the fresh, zingy flavours.Back to shop

Gers, along with Landes and Lot-et-Garonne, is the birthplace of the armagnac appellation. Located in south-western France, it’s a peaceful region dotted with tiny, ancient villages, and rolled with soft hills. It’s one of the most rural areas in Europe, with an incredibly low population density. Its climate is ideal for the grapes that go into armagnac, as they can mature to completion without over-ripening, allowing them to retain all of their individual aromas and qualities.
Built for cocktails
ODVI was created expressly for bartenders. As mixology continues to evolve, spirits such as cognac have taken their place as a staple of high-class cocktail menus – and now armagnac is stepping up to the plate. ODVI is a beautifully balanced spirit that walks the line between sweet and dry, offering a robust, young character bursting with fruit and pepper notes, and providing a delicious base for cocktail innovation.
A story of complexity
Part of ODVI’s complexity comes from its grape varieties. It’s built up from three different types – Baco, Ugni Blanc, and Folle Blanche – which all lend their individuality to the final character of the armagnac. The rest of the complexity comes from the ageing process, which takes place over a two-year period in French oak barrels. Oak-ageing infuses the spirit with soft vanilla and wood notes, and allows it to oxidise and evolve. ODVI emerges from the barrels with an extra layer of finesse and maturity, completing its spicy, juicy personality to perfection.
The Brains Behind It
Schoolfriends and business partners
Gabriel and Simon met as students, and stayed in touch even as their lives took them in different directions: Simon, around Europe in the hospitality industry, and Gabriel to New York to work in the spirits industry. When Gabriel came up with the idea of creating his own armagnac, Simon was his perfect partner, having grown up in the Gers region and bathed in the culture of armagnac. Together they make a passionate and formidable team.More on the Brand
