Massenez Calvados Vieux 500ml

$44.99 Bottle

Apple Brandy takes its name from Calvados, the Normandy centre where an ideally damp climate suits the French apple orchards. It is a sublime liquid, deep amber in colour with a pungent fragrance. Buying Calvados is far less of a hit and miss affair than with other spirits. This is because all Calvados must be submitted to a tasting committee. Before a certificate of quality is granted allowing the brandy sample to be called Calvados, it must pass the scrutiny of experts, who jealously guard the reputation of Normandy’s local treasure.

Special designations are rarely used for Calvados but are permitted as follows:

  • 3 Stars or 3 Apples = minimum age 2 years.
  • Vieux or Reserve = minimum age 3 years.
  • V.O. or Vieille Reserve = minimum age 4 years.
  • V.S.O.P. = minimum age 5 years.
  • Napolean or Hors D’Age or Age Inconnu = minimum over 5 years.
  • This Calvados from makers G.E.Massanez has an alcohol level of 40% and is highly recommended.

    Notes partly sourced from Peter Hallgarten’s, “Spirits & Liqueurs.”
