Four years minimum ageing in oak casks give Chateau du Breuil Calvados V.S.O.P. softness and balanced amber colour.

The fruity elegance of an "Appellation Pays d'Auge Controlee" Calvados.

The apple is the basic ingredient to make quality Calvados.The mild and damp weather and clayed soil of the Pays d'Auge give the Chateau du Breuil ideal growing conditions for its 22,000 apple trees which surround the castle.

The Chateau du Breuil company produces its own cider, coming from a 100% natural fermentation. Their know-how and experience are the strengths of the Chateau du Breuil which gives priority to high quality rather to quantity. When cider has reached its proper flavour, distillation can start.

A respectable Calvados, much fruitier and smoother than the younger Fine. The apple flavour is distinctive but not overpowering -- this is somewhat closer to traditional grape brandy than many other Calvados blends. Can be drunk neat and warmed slightly, or diluted with a little ice for a milder effect.
