Le Trou Normand.

In the region of Normandy apples are pressed into cider, from which this distinctive Eau de Vie originates. The Berneroys are masters of distillation and blending, and they have a keen eye for all the small things that are involved in the process of making their Calvados live up to its reputation. It is Grande, Oui Grande, we tell you.

Berneroy Calvados XO is made from apple must (juice) of over 180 named apple varieties. This juice is then fermented for a minimum period of four weeks before being once distilled in an antique copper column. Single distillation makes the Berneroy Calvados fruitier and distinctly more aromatic than some of its counterparts. It is aged for up to 25 years in casks made of Limousin oak.

Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

Comment
This is the Basis of the Le trou Normand (the Norman hole) tradition. Apparently it can reawaken the appetite between courses in a long meal. Just the thing we are fond of.

Delicious, but quite sharp. The warm apple aroma is my favorite part of drinking this calvados.
