boulard grand solage miniature - 5cl
Calvados Brandy Miniatures
Golden brown with a pale yellow tint, the Grand Solage Boulard Calvados brandy miniatures come in a sleek, long-necked, and unmistakably French bottle reflective of its regional heritage and origins that can be traced to as far back as 1825. This brandy is derived from apples, more specifically using a blend of Calvados taken from the Pays d’Auge. The resulting blend is then matured for 2 to 5 years, although this spirit is marketed as a no statement liquor.
Calvados brandy miniatures open up to the fruity aroma of both sour and cooked apples. The smell of vanilla, oak and cinnamon coupled with a grassy nose and a rich, floral bouquet adds another layer of complexity. On the palate, its apple cider character is highlighted then hinted with the spiciness from black pepper and woodiness of nutmeg towards the finish.
Calvados brandy small bottles of Grand Solage are bottled at 40% ABV expression. Although best recommended taken neat or on the rocks, this brandy will also do well as a spirit base for a wide range of cocktails, most especially the ones that necessitate a fruity sour and just a little bit of apple sweetness to create.
Highly versatile as a drink, Calvados brandy 5cl bottles are equally versatile for gift-giving and as party favours. Keep one in your drawer for your personal enjoyment.
