80th Birthday Gifts

These very valuable and rare calvados and armagnacs make ideal gifts for that special 80th Birthday celebration, for those born in 1940. Distilled 80 years ago, these vintages have very special flavours indeed which, together with their depleting availability, makes them unique and fitting presents for a very special 80th Birthday.
