When in 1942 the «Appellation Calvados Pays d'Auge» was created its regulations imposed no minimum aging. In those days, most Calvados was consumed uncoloured. It was called "La Blanche". Then, step by step, a minimum 2 year aging in oak casks was required.
Now Calvados Christian Drouin offers a new start to La Blanche.
Copper still double distilled and produced from over thirty varieties of cider apples.
