The History of Calvados
Calvados, or apple brandy, is native to Normandy and can be traced back to over 400 years ago. It became increasingly popular after the phylloxera crisis in the late 19th century. Today, it is one of the most well-known and respected eaux-de-vie in the world. It is often referred to as the “national drink of France.”
