The XO Royal, known also as the '12 Years Old', is a blend of various Armagnacs which, exclusively, have been aged in oak in Janneau's maturation warehouses. Supervised and sampled throughout the ageing process the spirits chosen for the XO Royal blend are chosen for their specific qualities. The colour blue, chosen as an expression for XO Royal, is the colour of the Third Millennium: the blue of lapis-lazuli, the gem capable to free the creative expression and increase mental clearness. The specially designed Janneau 'Basquaise' bottle of the XO Royal is completed by the outside Metal Box in blue and gold crafted in Italy. The result is a gift presentation of sure impact.
