Pere Magloire Calvados VSOP

70cl | 40%

In 1553, Sir Gilles of Gouberville mentioned in his diaries the practice of distilling cider to make apple brandy. This is believed to be the first notable reference to the production of Calvados. The Pere Magloire brand was founded in 1821 by the Debrise Dulac company and by 1900, the brand Calvados Pere Magloire had become the most important Calvados brand in the whole of France. 

Hailing from France’s legendary Normandy cider orchards, family-owned Maison Pere Magloire crafts some of the world’s most exquisite aged Calvados brandies. Aged for no less than 4 years in oak, their multi-award-winning Pere Magloire Calvados VSOP makes the perfect digestif or unique cocktail base.

Normandy’s Heritage Calvados House Since 1821

The heritage Pere Magloire house has been perfecting its Calvados mastery for over two centuries, excelling through innovation while honouring time-honoured cidermaking and distilling traditions passed down generations.

For the VSOP, the cellar master hand selects traditional Norman cider apples from trusted family growers surrounding the Pays d’Auge estate. After patient fermentation and double pot distillation, the apple brandy ages in French Limousin oak for at least 4 years.

Tasting Note

Breathe in alluring floral notes of apple blossom, jasmine and white rose, surrounded by ripe apple, apricot and meadow honey.

The first sip reveals flavours of vanilla cream, butterscotch and hazelnut embraced by subtle oak tannins. Pere Magloire Calvados VSOP finishes with praline and baked apple notes.

Traces of cinnamon and clove flirt with candied apple and brown sugar, culminating in a lingering baked fruit sweetness beckoning another warming sip.
