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.

The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
Cognac is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
