Calvados AOC contrôlée
minimum of 15 years in oak barrels
40 % vol.
Our Calvados AOC is obtained by a simple distillation of cider in an “alambic à colonne” (simple distillation still).
First, the juice obtained by pressing the apples is completely fermented (12 months) in one hundred year old oak barrels. Calvados obtained is 70% proof.
Our still is heated by an innovative and unique process in Normandy:
woodchips, produced on the Estate.
Finally, the Calvados Tradition ages in separate oak barrels for a minimum of 15 years.
