Nestled in the picturesque region of Normandy, France, Fournier Fernand is a renowned producer of the exquisite Vieux Calvados. With a rich history dating back several generations, this family-owned distillery has mastered the art of crafting exceptional spirits that capture the essence of the land and the traditions of the region.

The story of Fournier Fernand begins in the late 19th century when Fernand Fournier, a passionate distiller, established the distillery in the heart of Normandy. Inspired by the lush apple orchards that surrounded him, Fernand set out to create a unique spirit that would showcase the true flavors of the region. Today, his legacy lives on as his descendants continue to uphold his vision and dedication to producing the finest Calvados.

What sets Fournier Fernand apart is their unwavering commitment to traditional production methods. Each step of the process is carefully executed to ensure the highest quality and authenticity of their spirits. The journey begins with the meticulous selection of apples, which are hand-picked from the family's orchards. Only the finest, ripest apples are chosen, as they are believed to impart the most complex and nuanced flavors to the final product.

Once the apples have been harvested, they are pressed to extract the precious juice, which is then fermented for several weeks. This slow fermentation process allows the natural sugars in the apples to transform into alcohol, creating a base for the distillation. The fermented apple juice is then distilled in traditional copper stills, a method that has been passed down through generations. This careful distillation process ensures that the spirit retains the unique characteristics of the apples, resulting in a truly exceptional Calvados.

After distillation, the spirit is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 45 years, allowing it to develop its distinctive flavor profile. The oak imparts subtle notes of vanilla, caramel, and spice, while also mellowing the spirit and adding depth and complexity. The result is a Vieux Calvados that is smooth, refined, and full of character.

Fournier Fernand's Vieux Calvados 45yrs is a true masterpiece. Its deep amber color and rich aroma of baked apples, cinnamon, and toasted oak immediately captivate the senses. On the palate, it offers a harmonious blend of flavors, with hints of dried fruits.
