You have to imagine the smell as a child, coming home from school just as granny is taking a fruit cake out of the oven, this calvados is full of sultana and baked apple aromas and a rich baked apple taste. It is made from 80% fallen apples that have a higher sugar content.

Additional Information

Aroma Fruit cake and sultanas.
Distillation Cidre distilled in the same manner as cognac
Flavour Very rich, the fruit cake aroma is enhanced with baked toffee apple, vanilla and a hint of pear also comes through.
Grape Variety Not a grape but cidre made from apples and perry pear. The apples come from 5 different varieties, 20% are picked and the rest are allowed to start dropping, thus allowing maximum sugar content. There is 12% pear added.
Viticulture The mild and damp weather and clayed soil of the Pays d'Auge give the Château du Breuil ideal growing conditions for its 22,000 apple trees which surround the castle.
