Calvados
Calvados:- is an apple brandy from the French region of Lower Normandy. Norman apple brandy gradually caught on around Europe to the extent that in 1684 the English apple growers were challenged to produce brandy from their cider to stop the flood of foreign brandy. In France, before the Revolution, the sale of Norman apple brandy was limited to the area in which it was produced as a way of protecting the market held by the long established wine-based brandies, Armagnac and Cognac.
