Ambres Distillery

Calvados Amber N°1

59 €
From the first distillation of the Distillerie des Ambres, this 2017 vintage has been aged in old Cognac oak barrels in the Longère de la Croix cellar. With its golden, sunny colour, this calvados reveals a spontaneous vivacity on the nose, with very fruity citrus aromas and finely woody scents of vanilla and coconut punctuated with roasted notes of coffee and ginger. On the palate, this fruity character, marked by fresh ginger and vanilla, offers a very balanced, powerful and elegant calvados.
