93 points, “Wild nose of fresh apple peel, baked apple pie crust, white chocolate, and golden flowers. A rich, toothsome palate unfolds more orchard flavours and finishes with warm notes of oak and juicy fresh stone fruits.” – Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2021

Another exceptional release from Christian Drouin. This VSOP Pays d’Auge Calvados was crafted from bittersweet cider apples, double distilled in copper stills, and matured in small previously used casks, including some old wine barrels. Stunning sipped neat after dinner or mixed into a wide variety of cocktails, it’s both refreshing and warming at the same time. Pour a little to discover notes of Tarte Tatin, ripe apple, crisp pear, sharp cider, freshly hewn oak, orchard blossom, peach, apricot and comforting festive spices. A delicious introduction to one of Calvados’ all-time greats.

Christian Drouin Senior bought a farm in Gonneville, Normandy, in the 1960s. Armed with a love of fine wine and fine food, he decided to use the cider apple orchard to make Calvados and the family has been doing it ever since. Now the mantle has been passed to Christian Drouin Junior and the third generation to join the farm, Guillaume Drouin. Their Calvados is now sold worldwide and is widely considered to be the finest on the market, as demonstrated by the more than 200 gold medals it has received in spirits competitions.
