Domfrontais A.O.C :
Calvados Domfrontais A.O.C is produced thanks to poiré and cider
distillation with a still.
It is then left for years in oak barrels where the producer will have
to check carefully and regularly.
Fruit taste will change, Calvados Domfrontais will sweeten and get new
flavours: butter, vanilla, apple, liquorice and wood...
Young, Calvados Domfrontais is served for a cocktail.
To create the famous "Trou Normand", a boule of apple ice
cream and a drop of calvados to help digest, choose a 6-year-old one.
Over 10 years old in the barrel, it is a perfect digestive.
It has always been a capital element in every good Norman cuisine from,
starters to deserts.
