8 Year Old Limited Edition Sauternes Cask Finish Calvados
Cask finishing is quite de rigueur in the whisky world, but is rarely witnessed in Calvados. In fact this Harvey Nichols exclusive is the very first cask-finished Calvados brought to the UK by Château du Breuil. And in true French style, they’ve chosen none other than Sauternes casks…
With only 24 bottles of this 8 Year Old Calvados available, it is a rare delicacy. The several additional months it has spent in sweet Sauternes barrels has layered honey, dried apricot, crème brulee and golden raisin notes over the already rich and creamy Calvados flavours. It reminds us of eating baked apples filled with dried fruit and chopped hazelnuts and pecans, sprinkled with soft brown sugar and served with melting vanilla ice cream. It’s a genuinely inspired and original creation, and one not to be missed.
Based in the heart of Normandy, Château du Breuil craft some of the most world-renowned Calvados using Pays d’Auge cider apples. Double distilling, they create the smoothest and finest Calvados we’ve ever come across, which is then filled into their eye-catching bottles, laced up with string and hand-dipped in wax. With its pink tiles, criss-cross beams and carefully manicured lawns, Château du Breuil is as elegant and fine as the nectar it produces. Popping your head into the Orangery feels like entering an upturned galleon filled with barrels and heady aroma of oak and ageing spirit. This equally magical and rare example of Calvados is best sipped and savoured neat at the end of an evening or alongside an apple pie or crumble.
