CHRISTIAN DROUIN 70 ans 1948 Pays d Auge
Calvados, France / Normandie, 70cl, Ref: 55607
In 1948, Normandy was still recovering from the second world war and farmers started to make stocks of calvados and Eau de Vie de Cidre again. Almost all the stocks of the previous years had either been taken by the french government for the use of the war (to make gun powder !) or drunk during occupation. However, a rare Eau de vie de Cidre has been kept in casks since that and we are very happy to offer you this unique bottle, distilled in 1948 and bottled this year after nearly 70 years of aging in oak casks. One can estimate that the evaporation rate of this Eau de Vie has been closed to 90% of the stock since its distillation.
1948 Eau de vie de Cidre is a very deep and rich spirit as well as a part of the Normand history.

- The brand
Three generations from a family of enthusiasts have now handed down control of the Christian Drouin house, one of the greatest gems in the production of Calvados and in particular Calvados Pays d’Auge. Established in 1991 on a former stud farm in Coudray-Rabut near Pont l´Evêque, the estate boasts an exceptional range. In possession of the best and most comprehensive collection of old vintage Calvados - the oldest dating back to 1939 - Christian Drouin is to Calvados what Gordon & MacPhail is to whisky - a temple! Its cellar masters have been awarded numerous prizes in recognition of their skills.
