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.
