Calvados :

One of the most environmentally
sustainable spirits in the world.

Calvados is an apple brandy spirit made with perry pears and is one of the most environmentally sustainable spirits in the world. Essentially a distilled cider, Calvados must be aged for at least two years in French oak barrels and presents the earthy fruitiness of apples and pears.

Naturally Authentic

The Strategic Sourcing Hub partners Distillerie Coquerel in Normandy, France to offer some of the most naturally authentic and innovative fruited spirits in this distilled in this style.

40 Apple Varieties

Distillerie Coquerel uses over 40 varieties of apples from their orchards in Normandy. Apple trees naturally remove CO2 from the atmosphere and do not require any artificial irrigation contributing to Calvados’ natural sustainability. Coquerel believes that great Calvados is above all a great cider.

Aged in French
Oak Barrels

The fruits are harvested, sorted, washed, crushed and then the must pressed in our cidery to get apple juice that is left for natural fermentation for a minimum of 21 days to become cider. This fermentation is often much longer and can sometimes last several months. Then, the freshly distilled spirit is initially aged in French oak barrels for 3-6 months, then up to as many as 8 years or more, depending on desired flavor profile.
