Winery Information: Located amid the Calvados region (Normandy), Château du Breuil has been a distillery transforming apples into Calvados, an apple brand, since 1954. Built in the early 16th century, the Châteay has been the residence of great noble French families and now is classified as a historical monument. It is one of the rare Calvados distilleries to have integrated orchids of apple trees on the property, a total of 22,000 planted on 42 hectares. Château du Breuil company produces more than 420,000 bottles every year. It is the No. 2 AOC “Pays d’Auge” Calvados producer.

Blend and Maturation: The production begins with a careful selection of 5 varieties of the finest quality apples in the Pays d’Auge region of Normandy in France. These apples are picked at their peak and then undergo natural fermentation. The distillation process takes place between the beginning of winter and June 30th of the following year. Double distillation occurs in a Charentais pot followed by aging in French Limousin or Troncais oak casks, first in new casks and then older casks for a longer period of slow maturation.

Tasting Notes: Amber colour. Delicate aromas of apples. Fruity and refreshing on the palate.
