• Christian Drouin 1996 Coeur de Lion Pays d'Auge Calvados

Finished in Banyuls Cask. Bottled in 2015 Christian Drouin, père, began distilling Calvados in 1960 after purchasing a farmhouse and surrounding orchards, only to find little demand for his apples. Luckily a family friend with his portable still came to the rescue. The mobile stills built in 1947 are still in use at the Drouin estate, where they found their permanent home.


The core of C. Drouin Calvados is of the Pays d'Auge AOC. Pays d'Auge is the oldest AOC for calvados, and was established in 1942. By law, calvados from this appellation must be double distilled using a pot still and aged a minimum of two years. A small percentage of pears can be used, but C. Drouin does not use pears in its Pays d'Auge bottlings.
