BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer visits Normandy, France to taste Calvados.
We learn why this French apple brandy is increasing in global popularity.
Calvados is seeing a resurgence both as an apéritif and a digestif while continuing to enjoy an even greater spotlight in mixology.
In the video above, Tom takes a tour of Distillerie Busnel in Cormielles and speaks with Philippe Terlier, Director of the Busnel Distillery.
They produce some of the finest Calvados in the region under both the Busnel and Anée labels.
Just like whiskey, the flavors, aging and types of Calvados are varied giving us a lot to review!
We join our friend Mixologist Anthony Caporale and an team of American mixologists including Nicola Riske, Logan Lavachec and Craig Joseph on this French tour.
