Description

Christian Drouin Hine Angels Calvados

Christian Drouin Hine Angels Calvados is a magnificent Calvados created in collaboration with Cognac house Hine who kindly gave Christian Drouin some of their Cognac casks to complete the aging process of this delicious Calvados offering. Having spent a staggering 17 years undergoing its maturation process, the final 6 months leave the precious eaux-de-vie to age in old Hine Cognac casks.

Aging Calvados in Cognac casks offers a unique and “experimental” method that brings out the floral flavors and silky tannins beautifully. Since this 17-year-old Calvados du Pays d’Auge already had a great depth that are in line with the flavors of Hine Cognacs, it made sense for Christian Drouin and his team to experiment with this eau-de-vie, with the use of the Hine casks for the Christian Drouin Experiment range – and it’s safe to say it certainly paid off.

As a limited special edition, only 1296 bottles are available.

The house of Drouin tells a story of passion starting in 1960 when Christian Drouin Senior became the owner of Fiefs SaintAnne on the Gonneville hills, near Honfleur. Once the farm was planted with apple trees, he acquired a hunger to produce his own calvados. For the next twenty years, he did just that going headfirst into the distillation process, before putting the eaux-de-vie aside for aging. Ever since the family business has continued to blossom with Christian Drouin Junior and his son Guillaume now at the forefront of production and business management.

Presentation of the bottle

Housed in a classic Calvados style bottle, Hine Angels presents a stunning deep red crest on the front of the bottle. The presentation is pulled together elegantly with matching red typography on the label work which is offset on a cream background. The design overall appears to be very traditional and reflects the well-aged liquid gold that it holds inside. A sumptuous gift to an experimental connoisseur or lover of eaux-de-vie based spirits.

How to enjoy

Serve Hine Angels Calvados neat or on the rocks. This way you’ll be able to appreciate the eau-de-vie in its purest form without distraction. Pair with a fruit dessert such as a Tarte Tatin or apple pie for a deliciously sweet and indulgent experience of fine quality.
