ABOUT THE SPIRIT
A 30-hectare estate, going back to the 1800s, owned by a family which has been in the Pays d’Auge region for more than three centuries. Etienne Dupont took over the estate in 1980, drawing on experience gained in the Cognac region to perfect the fermentation and distillation methods on the estate, and championing the creation of the Pays d’Auge AOC. Their orchards contain 6000 trees, with 13 different varieties of apple

TASTING NOTES
Aged for at least 6 years in barrel, 25% new oak; exceptionally deep and complex for a relatively youthful Calvados, with apple, vanilla and baking spices on the aromas. The palate is rounded, without significant bite, and with ripe apple and dry wood flavours which linger on a long, complex finish.

FOOD PAIRING
An excellent digestive, this would also pair well with relatively savoury deserts like bread pudding, and would be exceptional with cheese.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The apples used to produce Calvados are quite different from those used to produce cider (usually sweeter and less acidic) and those produced for eating (usually a lot sweeter!). For Calvados, a blend of bittersweet and acidic apples are used to create a base-cider, which is then distilled to produce a very dry spirit, mellowed by barrel-ageing.
