Calvados

Sweet and sour and packed full of the richness of cider, Calvados is a cider spirit made almost exclusively in the French region of Normandy. It is made using specifically selected apples and brings together four key flavour notes: sweet, bitter, sour and bittersweet. At The Fine Wine Company we offer some sterling examples of quality Calvados from Normandy, offering up the fine flavours that you know and love.

Calvados is produced in the specific areas, each of which produces spirits which have particular flavours and characteristics. Calvados Pays d’Auge is known for its rich, round and complex flavour, Calvados is known for being fruity, fresh and pungent on the nose and Calvados Domfrontais is a more floral offering with a deeper, sour flavour.

In terms of age Calvados can be bought at two to three years old and labelled Trois Etoiles or Trois Pommes, at four years old and labelled VSOP or VO and at more than six years old and labelled Hors d’Age.

Calvados is usually drunk as an aperitif, either on its own or with ice but of course once you’ve made your purchase you can enjoy it in any way you like. Older Calvados, especially those from Pays d’Auge work beautifully with a cheese board or as an after dinner drink.
