Chateau du Breuil
ORIGIN: Normandy, France
PRODUCT: Chateau du Breuil VSOP Calvados
Normandy is a picturesque land full of green pastures and orchards full of apples. These are pressed into cider, from which they get a distinctive Eau de Vie called Calvados. Located in Pays d'Auge in the heart of Normandy lies the Chateau du Breuil a castle dating back to 16th century where the culture of growing apples and turning them into Calvados has a long tradition. The distillery itself is operating for three generations now. The clayed soil and mild and damp weather is perfect for growing over 22.000 apple trees that surround the castle.
Chateau du Breuil Calvados VSOP is made from only from cider that comes from their own apples and 100% natural fermentation. The distillation itself takes time in the beginning of winter and the distillate is then carefully barreled for at least 4 years. Like the classifications for Cognac, Calvados also bears the grade that reflects the age and quality of the drink. A soft Spirit that delivers abundance of rounded flavours, perfect as a digestive that you never had before.
