Together with Cognac and Armagnac, Calvados is one of the three French appellations for aged spirits. Among the three appellations for calvados, “calvados Pays d’Auge” is not only the oldest, it is also recognised as being the more qualitative. Made from a double distillation, calvados Pays d’Auge are mellow and full bodied.

When Christian Drouin bought a farm in Gonneville in the 1960s, he decided to use the cider- apple orchards to produce calvados. Today the family business has a world-wide reputation. It maintains the traditions that have enabled the estate to become one of the 100 “sites of excellence in taste” selected by the French ministry for culture. In 1995 the European foundation awarded the estate its European Prestige Grand Prix for the whole of its production.

Their Fine Calvados Pays d’Auge (40%vol) is aged over three years in small oak casks. It is pale gold, has a fruity nose and is clear on the palate; apple aromas are still strongly perceptible.
