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.
