Pierre Huet Calvados AOC Pays d’Auge XO

This Calvados XO (also known as Vieille Réserve 8 ans) follows the strict Calvados AOC Pays d’Auge guidelines that require double-distillations in a traditional copper pot still called an “alembic á repassé.” The fermented cidre that is used for making Calvados (called calvados cidre) is fermented for 12 months in hundred-year-old oak barrels before being distilled. After distillation, the resulting spirits are put in oak barrels once again and aged for a minimum of eight years. 750ML/375ML/50ML bottles. 40% alc/vol. 750ML bottles in individual gift boxes.
