Tasting Notes

This new expression from beloved producer Didier Lemorton is a slightly younger blend than the rich and excellent Reserve. Based in the tiny appellation of Domfrontais, the Calvados there consists of a much higher percentage of pear, making up more than the majority for Lemorton Calvados. The aromatics on the selection explodes with wave after wave of fresh orchard fruit, still hanging on the branch, along with a beautiful balance of vanilla, cherry blossoms, and lanolin. An incredibly well made spirit for sipping, as an apéritif, or for use in cocktails.

Staff Pick Notes

Simply put, this is a beautifully made calvados that begs to be used in cocktails! Lemorton is an incredible producer of calvados from the far south region where pears dominate the blend. The family distills their cider after aging it for nearly a year in oak barrels. After distillation in their own alembic stills the clear spirit goes into neutral barrels that are over 30 years old. This particular calvados is young and perfect for showing it's beautiful pear and apple fruit. Try it in our interpretation of Brian Miller's Little Sparrow: 2oz Lemorton Selection, 1/4oz Lairds Apple Brandy, 3/4oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, 1/2 oz Giffard Wild Elderflower Liqueur, 2 dashes Creole Bitters, Stir all ingredients over ice, strain into a Nick & Nora or coupe glass, Garnish with a lemon twist.
