Calvados Coquerel Fine
Normandy has been famous for its apples for thousands of years. One myth from the ancient Gauls claimed that Venus sowed the seeds of the first apple orchards in the region. Calvados is believed to date back to the 16th century when distillers of wine began experimenting with cider, the traditional drink of Normandy. Then in 1588, a ship from the Spanish Armada ran aground in Normandy. It’s name, “El Calvador” became the namesake for this fine product. Located near the timeless Mont Saint Michel, Domaine du Coquerel was founded in 1937. It takes over 13 pounds of apples to make a 750 milliliter bottle of Calvados Coquerel. It is the #2 Calvados in the world. Coquerel Fine is a blend of calvados aged a minimum of 3 years. It makes a fine aperitif, digestif, and is also an excellent ingredient for cocktails.

Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula

Pierre Ferrand 1840

All Ferrand Cognacs are derived from vineyards in the heart of the chalk-rich and mineral laden soils of the Grande Champagne region.

1840 *** cognac offers ripe, juicy grapes to the nose, accented with meadow flowers, notes of acacia tree blossom and a bracing hint of cedar. On the palate, it’s warm with fruit notes yet still very clean. The finish shows lots of honey and spice.

Espirit de June Liqueur

A sweet, flowery liqueur from Cognac, infused with the blossoms of Ugni Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and other grape varietals.

This unique liqueur is crafted from the vine-flowers of Ugni Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon.These delicate flowers only blossom for a few days in June (hence the name), and must be harvested by hand as soon as they emerge. Each type of flower is then infused with neutral grape spirit, which is then distilled in a Florentine pot still (the same sort used by master perfume makers).The distillates are then blended together and distilled once again to unify the flavors and create an impeccably smooth liqueur.
