Calvados Original is a "white calvados", aged for 2 years in old oak casks. Fruit forward, it is pale yellow in colour. Also available as a Spray, for cooking or cocktails. The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled. Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the "petite eau" at 30% by volume and it is the second distillation, that of the "petite eau" which gives the Calvados. At least 2 years. In 2000 to 3000 litre (440 to 660 imperial gallons) vats followed by 400 litre (88 imp gallons) toasted oak barrels, whose tannins have been exhausted, to allow the calvados to keep its original aromas of fruit.
Water white with very pale hints of yellow. Clear and brillant.
Powerful, fine, fresh and very complex for a Calvados of only this age, fruit at first then floral. The aromas of green apple and citrus predominate, with hints of cherry and floral notes.
Fresh attack, supple and round in the mouth, consistent, shows long and intense in retro-olfaction.

When we received the keys to GlenAllachie our Master Distiller Billy Walker immediately set to work putting his fingerprint on our whisky; Scottish barley, 160 hour fermentation, slow distillation. As a blender for 50 years, the warehouses are where Billy really does comes in to his own. Working across our 16 warehouses with casks dating back to the 1970’s, Billy has selected a limited number of casks to be released as GlenAllachie 18yo. The signature GlenAllachie rich, robust spirit in harmony with the heather and butterscotch notes. The GlenAllachie 18 Year Old is bottled at 46%, non chill filtered and natural colour.
