This collection invites you to get to know the different characteristics of the different Calvados-appelations (regions of production). It includes three different 20 cl bottles: Calvados Sélection, Calvados Domfrontais Réserve and Calvados Pays d'Âuge V.S.O.P. Calvados Sélection: -Christian Drouin's Calvados Sélection is produced according to the rules of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée du Calvados, distilled continuously and only bottled at 40% ABV after ripening for 2 to 3 years.


The must from the region Domfront with its high pear content of over 30% provides the warranty for the fine quality of this cider brandy. The Sélection is to be viewed as Calvados for first-time enjoyers, and for that it's been awarded numerous prizes. Awards: Silver medal, Vinalies Internationales 2011 Gold medal, Cambremer 2011 Silver medal, I.W.S.C. London 2011 -Calvados Domfrontais Réserve This distilled cider at 42% ABV is produced in the cellar cooperative Les Chais du Verger Normand according to the rules of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée du Calvados Domfrontais. It ages for more than 3 years in oak casks where it gains its tones of topaz and cask aromas. The bouquet is dominated by fresh apples and pears and accompanied by cinnamon. The flavor is light with underlying wooden tones. This Calvados Domfrontais Réserve is perfectly suited for the so-called Norman Hole (trou normand), and otherwise will taste refined with sweet desserts. It should be served in a snifter at around 18 degrees Celsius. Awards: Silver medal, Paris 2005 Vermeil medal, Vimoutiers 2009 Silver medal, I.W.S.C. London 2009 Gold medal, Paris 2009 Bronze medal, I.W.S.C. London 2010 Bronze medal, Vimoutiers 2010 Grand Prix d'Excellence, Vinalies Nationales 2010 -Calvados Pays D'Âuge V.S.O.P. (Very Special Old Pale) is a blend of different cider brandies aged at least 6 years or longer in small, old wine casks. The bouquet begins by showing hints of sweet cider, grilled apple and baked goods with ginger, vanilla and cinnamon; then emerge traces of beeswax and almonds. Its taste is rich but light with a romas of apple pie with a long aftertaste of fresh apples.


This 42% ABV Calvados is extraordinarily successful, with a harmonic interplay between fruits and floral and spicy aromas, where one aspect never dominates the other. Because the Calvados remains light, it works wonderfully as a trou normand between courses (see the link on serving Calvados) or also works well served with Livarot cheese, also a speciality from Normandy. You can also buy the 70 cl bottle of this V.S.O.P. Calvados from our shop, or the Magnum bottle (1.5 liter). It should be served at room temperature in a snifter.
