Christian Drouin Très Pomme Calvados

Item # 47189

With Christian's passing of the baton for this family legacy of Calvados, son Guillaume is putting his creativity and youthful vitality to use and in the meantime creating things that will change the category of Calvados as we know it. This very limited bottling was created from a selection of the family's highest quality 2 year old casks chosen specifically for the aromatic intensity. Bottled at a high proof of 53% abv. this is the ultimate trou normand.

Staff Pick Notes

It was probably not in question that Guillaume Drouin would take over the family business, but before he returned to Normandy he traveled the world working in winemaking and even in the Haitian rum industry. Beyond the core lineup, they now produce a range of highly mixable spirits. Two fantastic gins with a base of cider eau-de-vie, vintage brandies with rare cask aging, and the Très Pomme: a two-year-old, cask strength (full proof is a rarity in Calvados) brandy selected from their fruitiest, most highly aromatic stocks. While I love the intensity of the spirit on its own, that combination also makes this the ultimate Calvados and tonic bottle. The proof will cut through syrupy liqueurs like St. Germain, or sweeter amari like Averna or Montenegro. I personally loved it in a sidecar subbing in creole shrub for the orange liqueur.
