Freshly emptied Calvados barrel (6 years filled), french oak from Normandie.
Calvados is a traditional spirit made of Cidre from the French region Normandy and is a classical digestif. The beginning of Calvados was in the 16th century. At that time only peasant would have drank this spirit. Since the 19th century Calvados raised to one of the best digestifes.

Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
