Calvados, the amber eau-de-vie made from the finest apples in the Pays d’Auge, is delicious, whether drunk as an aperitif, a digestif, or simply enjoyed as a fireside treat on a winter’s evening.
This year, Calvados house Père Magloire is celebrating its 200th anniversary. To mark the occasion, Cellar Master Jean-Luc Fossey invites us to the distillery where he explains how it is made and leads a tasting of three types of Père Magloire: the fine, the VSOP and the special anniversary edition XO 200.
With guests including spirits industry expert Gavin McGowan-Madoo, you will learn not only about the provenance and production of this beloved spirit, but explore interesting new ways to taste it. Calvados and tonic, anyone?
You can buy Père Magloire Calvados at thedrinkshop.com, where a special offer of free delivery is available until December 15. So stock up, sit back and join in this virtual tasting.
