Avallen Calvados Bottling Note

A delish drink that gives bees a boost AND is genuinely sustainable? Say hello to Avallen Calvados! The brand’s founders are on a mission to make the world better: as part of the 1% for the Planet movement, they make donations to organisations that protect bees and help them thrive, partly through planting more than 10,000 wild flowers in the next three years. The production story is a tasty one, too: Avallen is made without sugar, caramel or boisé (a wood extract sometimes used to add colour to Calvados) – literally just good old apples and water – before it’s aged in French oak barrels for at least two years. In keeping with the general apple theme, the bottle’s label has even been printed on recycled apple pulp paper!

As a celebration of its eco-friendly efforts, Avallen was bestowed the Green Launch of the Year 2019 title at the Drinks Business Green Awards, and named Best Company 2020 at the Sustainability in Spirits Awards!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Loads of red and green apples, with gentle oak spice, vanilla tones and a slightly tannic oaky note.

Just so smooth

First purchase Aug 2020 as a gift to my hubby.
Not purchased this brand previously but with the expert online advise I was given it certainly did not disappoint.
Have just purchased second bottle.
You have to try this brand you won't want any other.

At present I can only comment on the ethos of Avallen and dedication to Violette Szabo GC and thus five stars.

I am going to buy a bottle as Avallen sponsored the Violette Szabo GC garden for the Malvern Spring Festival - only to be cancelled due to covid-19. Violette was my mother, she was young, brave and beautiful. She was an agent of SOE and had two missions in Occupied France before her capture and the rest, to be illegally executed just prior to war's end. I have written her story - in hardback called Young, Brave and Beautiful and in paperback just simply VIOLETTE on Amazon. Thank you from the heart Avallen and I look forward to sipping your elixir. I have lots of bumble bees in my garden in the Heart of Wales country.

Smooth and drinkable

Very smooth, very light I think another bottle will be ordered soon, very soon . Great service from Master Of Malt
And good for bees, what could be better?

Smooth, delicious and very drinkable!

I bought this as a gift for my parents as they're calvados drinkers (I'm not particularly) but it went down a storm with all of us.

It's absolutely beautiful, smooth, full of flavour and powerful - without that horrible afterburn you get with some strong spirits.

Would definitely recommend! Even to those who wouldn't consider themselves a Calvados drinker.

Smooth, enjoyable, delightful.

Outstanding sip. Can not recommend more highly.

Such a summer treat!

Best thing for a summer in the city!
Loved having it with tonic or in a cocktail with lemon, honey, topped with mead and garnished with thyme.
There is a beautiful ethic behind the brand, a love of environment and bees that we should all embrace!

Avallen Calvados, for whiskey enthusiasts everywhere!!

As a whiskey drinker of more than 20 years I can only applaud this delightful drink. The apples burst through carrying tasting notes that have the complexity of a whiskey without the aduptness of a brandy.

Move over Aperol - the new summer drink is here!

A wonderfully fresh hit of apple; perfect with tonic or soda. Definitely my new drink for the summer on sunny terraces!
