Calvados is a french apple brandy from the french region of Basse-Normandie. It is made from specially grown & selected apples of which there are 200 varieties. A combination of sweet, tart and inedible bitter apples are used to get the right balance of flavour. These are then harvested, pressed into a juice and fermented into a dry cider which is then distilled into an eau de vie. To be classed as a calvados this must then be aged in oak casks for a minimum of 2 years. The aging process usually lasts longer than this as the longer the process the smoother the drink becomes.
Double distilled to ensure an even deeper and more intense flavour, Père Magloire VSOP has been matured for up to 5 years and has dark golden hues to show for it. Père Magloire VSOP has a deep scent of apple blossom and fresh fruit which is followed be a deliciously crisp and juicy flavour which blends harmoniously with the mature oak flavours from the maturation process. Serve alongside mature and blue cheeses for a perfect partnership.
