Calvados

Discover the history of Calvados, one of France’s most celebrated brandies. Made with precision and care, Calvados is distilled from a unique blend of carefully chosen apples and pears. Each contributes to the distinct character and flavor profile of the brandy. Originating in the orchards of Normandy in North-West France, Calvados represents the rich culture of the region. It’s more than a beverage, it’s an expression of generations of dedicated mastery.

Unveiling the Intricacies of Calvados Distillation

Experience the art of distilling the best Calvados Brandy, where tradition and innovation combine to create a spirit with a depth and character that surpasses all expectations. After a patient 2-month fermentation process, the cider intended for the best Calvados Brandy is aged on its own for six months on its lees, deepening its aromatic expression. The artisans use a special type of alembic to extract every essence, giving the spirit its trademark silky elegance. By double distillation (as required by appellation rules), the cider is transformed into “petite eau”, rich in the congenerics necessary for flavor. Only the finest and most refined essence is preserved, with an alcohol level between 60-80% by volume. This process ensures that every sip of Calvados symbolizes its alluring quality and craftsmanship.
