The Calvados Pays D'Auge has unique features that make it superior to other appellations: the use of apples in much lower yield and distillation in pot stills. A Calvados that comes from a production philosophy and ancient craft. First, the apple cider is produced exclusively by tall trees almost completely replaced by the sad apple with a short leg, with branches parallel to the rows that naturally produce a lot more and the collection of which is much faster; these economic advantages have as a counterpart the production of a minor aromatic intensity.
