Calvados

Distilled from cider or perry, Calvados is made in Normandy. It has come to be better-known internationally than in France, and benefits from a simple PDO system that guarantees its quality and unique character. Within the one generic Calvados AOC appellation, there are three sub-appellations associated with specific terroirs and techniques. ‘Pays d’Auge’ applies to brandies distilled in pot stills solely from cider; ‘Domfrontais’ applies to those distilled in column stills from a base containing at least 30% perry; and finally ‘Blanche de Normandie’ denotes un-aged brandies. For each of these appellations, the apple orchards are made up of at least 20% local varieties, about 70% of bitter or bittersweet, and a maximum of 15% of acidic varieties.
