When in 1942 the “Appellation Calvados Pays d'Auge” was created, its regulations imposed no minimum aging. In those days, most Calvados was consumed uncoloured. This extremely perfumed and elegant eau-de-vie was called "La Blanche". Step by step, over the years a minimum of two year ageing in oak casks was required to label the spirit “Calvados AOC”.
Today Christian Drouin has recreated this traditional spirit, which is double-distilled in a copper still and produced from over thirty varieties of cider apples.
