Calvados Anée Capucins is a Calvados made from cider apple varieties mainly of Binet Rouge and Frequin Rouge. Approximately nine kilograms of apples were used for 70cl Calvados. Anée Capucins is distilled in a column still and consists of carefully selected distillates of different vintages.
The name Anée was first used in 1919 and comes from a devoted calvados producer who devoted his whole life to the production. To be called Calvados, the distillate must be made of cider from crushed apples or pears.Calvados is a carefully defined area of Normandy in the north-western France. The area has eleven sub-regions of which the Pays d'Auge is considered the best. The distillery that distills Anée is named Corneille and is located just outside the port city of Deauville.
