Paper Bottle Calvados


This spirit was already the apple of our eye, but then Avallen made it even better by switching to a striking and eco-friendly paper bottle. Lightweight and more robust than glass, each carbon-positive paper bottle removes 3.16kg of CO₂ from the atmosphere. 

Avallen is a fresh, floral and fruity style of Calvados for a new generation of drinkers who place the well-being of the planet firmly in their core values, if you’ll excuse the pun.

Crafted at Distillerie Coquerel in Normandy using nothing but 40 different apple varieties from 300 orchards in the pesticide-free region of La Manche, Avallen is aged in French oak for two years and bottled without the addition of sugar, caramel or boisé (a syrup made from boiled wood often used to imitate maturity in Calvados and Cognac). These apples really didn’t fall far from the tree, and their minimal processing creates a natural spirit that buzzes with energy and life like the orchards it hails from. Aromas of fresh apple, cider and honeysuckle give way to toffee apple flavours, tannins and spices from the oak, and a finish reminiscent of apple pie and custard. Avallen is an old Cornish term for ‘apple tree’, and we love it topped with tonic water or mixed into summery cocktails.

Winner of the Amorim Sustainability Award at the Drinks Business Green Awards 2021, Avallen is one of the most eco-friendly producers that Harvey Nichols has ever worked with. Not only are they a certified B Corp, which means that they’re part of a global movement of companies that put people and the planet before profit, but they’re also part of ‘1% for the Planet’, a network of businesses that give a proportion of their sales back to environmental causes. Bee populations are in decline around the world, and we simply can’t survive without them. So, Avallen donate to charities that protect them, as well as planting wildflowers to support all pollinators. Because apples grow on trees, which are powerful carbon sinks, every paper bottle of Avallen made removes almost 0.5kg more CO₂ from the atmosphere than their glass bottle, without resorting to external offsetting. How about them apples?
