Christian Drouin Calvados S?lection
Unlike the rest of the Christian Drouin Calvados Sélection, which are Calvados Pays d’Auge AOC, Sélection is bottled under Calvados AOC and uses both apples and pears from the Domfront region. It is distilled using a column still and emphasizes fresh fruit notes and a lighter style that is exceptional for use in cocktails. Among the large houses are more focused producers like C. Drouin… kind of Billecart-Salmon to Boulard’s Veuve Clicquot, to put it in Champagne terms. Drouin’s Calvados are always excellent, even inexpensive bottles like the Sélection.
