Techniques used

The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled. Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the “petite eau” at 30% by volume and it is the second distillation, that of the “petite eau” which gives the Calvados.

Aging: Six years minimum. In toasted 400 L (88 imperial gallon) oak barrels, 25% of which are new. Bottled when ordered.

Nose: Pleasant, fine with good complexity, lightly wooded. Fruit aromas of apple and banana. Floral hints of rose and jasmine. Develops in complexity when smelt again after swirling.
