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.
