Calvados Chateau Du Breuil
Calvados is an apple brandy traditionally made in the Calvados region of Normandy, France. Produced from fermented apples, or cider as we know it, this product often plays second fiddle to the grape brandies of France mostly from Cognac and Armagnac. Exactly why grape brandy is so popular is a vexing question, particularly after tasting a high quality Calvados while bearing in mind that there are literally hundreds of apple varieties distillers can use to craft a Calvados. Be that as it may, for most consumers, Calvados is one of France’s best kept secrets.
