Calvados Original is a "white calvados", aged for 2 years in old oak casks. Fruit forward, it is pale yellow in colour.
The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled. Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the "petite eau" at 30% by volume and it is the second distillation, that of the "petite eau" which gives the Calvados.
The Colour is Water white with very pale hints of yellow. Clear and brillant. Powerful bouquet, fine, fresh and very complex for a Calvados of only this age, fruit at first then floral. The aromas of green apple and citrus predominate, with hints of cherry and floral notes. The palate is Fresh, supple and round in the mouth, consistent, shows long and intense in retro-olfaction.
