Pacory, Calvados du Domfrontais 5Yr VSOP Half Bottle
Calvados has risen in popularity in France over the recent years probably due to the fact that it's a spirit that actually tastes like the raw product that it is made from.
Calvados is an apple brandy which has been made in the Normandy area. The apples are fermented and the product distilled twice. The liquid is then matured in oak for at least 5 years for this Calvados. Domfrontais is blended from approximately 70% pears and 30% apples. This single vintage Calvados is of outstanding quality.
Frederic Pacory took over the family farm, the Domaine Grimaux, at the beginning of the 1990's. His father produced Calvados, as did his Grandfather. Today the family run estate produce a fine range of Cidre and Calvados and pride themselves on the excellent quality of their products. In addition to the pear and apple trees on the property, the family also raise Norman cows.
