    Calvados Dupont Pays d'Auge - More than 12 y.o.

    Price:
    Excl. VAT: £68.03 Incl. VAT: £81.64

    Dupont are probably the finest traditional calvados producer in Normandy. We believe that calvados younger than about 8 years old is best used in cooking but this 12 year old blend is a fine example of their understanding of this fine spirit. Learn More

    This highly specialised product contains an attractive apple macerating in calvados. It is created in the spring when a carafe is suspended from the branch of the apple tree as soon as the first little apple appears; it then continues to grow inside. When the fruit has ripened the carafe is removed from the tree with its apple held captive inside.

    Calvados Dupont Pays d'Auge - More than 30 y.o.

    Price:
    Excl. VAT: £152.32 Incl. VAT: £182.79

    The 30 year old Dupont calvados is quite special as it has many fine qualities only associated with much older calvados. Dupont hs always made superb calvados and this is no exception. A very large difficulty with making calvados is the need to use pears for acidity which leave a pear drop flavour. In the 30 y.o. the pear drop aroma and flavour is not very noticeable and it is well balanced and smooth. Learn More
