Calvados Inner Core

ABOUT OUR FINE BRANDY CLUBS

Learning about France's magnificent triumvirate, Cognac, Armagnac and Calvados, has never been easier. We offer three different clubs that let you explore these magnificent spirits. As a member of our Inner Circle Buyer's Clubs you could be receiving a carefully chosen example every third month, four times a year, shipped directly to your home or office. By participating in this group purchase you would be getting your brandy at a great price, as well--as much as 15 to 40% off normal retail. The charge for the bottle, itself, is no more than $199.99(usually much less). Does not include tax and or shipping. Each shipment includes a fact sheet about the producer along with our own tasting notes. No initiation fees or fees of any sort, just pure pleasure and a chance to learn about the fascinating world of these noble spirits. 

Here are some of our past offerings:

ROGER GIARD PAYS D’AUGE 1972

The color is a deep amber with red highlights. The nose shows notes of baked red apple, marzipan, vanilla and cedar. The mouth feel is fullbodied, with fantastic attack and persistence. The apple flavors expand in the mouth and stain the palate with both ripe apple pulp and skin. A hint of wood smoke adds complexity on the long finish. This is an amazing Calvados that retains its fruit and balance after over forty three years in oak barrels. 

Rollon Altesse Calvados Hors d’Age

The Rollon Altesse Hors d’Age has a deep, intense color that bears witness to the many decades this spirit has spentin oak. Yet with all of that time, the tannins are round and the fruit is explosive! The nose is full of red apple and nutflavors, while the palate offers up additional notes of apple skin and licorice. This is a bold calvados that also has avery long finish!

Frederic et Catherine Pacory 30 Year Calvados Fomfrontais

Frederic and Catherine’s 30 Year Old Calvados has a lovely amber color with gold highlights. The nose showsconcentrated notes of pear compote, toffee, nuts and an earthy complexity. The palate is medium to full-bodied, andshows additional flavors of smoke and spice. The finish is long and lasts on the palate for several minutes. Enjoywith some Camembert or simply by itself
