Prestige Pierre Huet
Calvados AOC (Protected Designation of Origin)
Blend of our oldest calvados.
Serving suggestion :
This Calvados must be consumed preferably in a Calvados or « tulipe » glasses, at 18–20 °C.
We advice to leave this Calvados about 15 minutes in a glass before tasting.
With optimal preservation conditions (constant cellar temperature), Calvados can be kept about 10 years.
To open these bottles, it is advised to cut the wax at the level of the joint between the cork and the bottle with a knife.
On the top of the bottle marketed in a wooden box is the seal « PH », which are the initials of our ancestor: Pierre Huet.
Our Calvados AOC is obtained by a simple distillation of cider in an “alambic à colonne” (simple distillation still).
First, the juice obtained by pressing the apples is completely fermented (12 months) in one hundred year old oak barrels.
Our still is heated by an innovative and unique process in Normandy: woodchips. Woodchips produced on the Estate serves as ecological combustible.
Calvados obtained is 70% proof. Finally the Calvados Cordon Argent ages in separate oak barrels for a minimum of 20 years.
