Launched Spring 2019, Avallen Calvados is the creation of two experienced spirits marketers, Stephanie Jordan and Timothy Etherington-Judge.
40 varieties of apple are used to make Avallen with 2% of these grown adjacents to the distillery and the remaining sourced from farms within 20km of the distillery in La Manche region of Normandy - an area pesticide-free since 2016.
Only wild yeast is used for fermentation and Avallen is 100% 'natural' with no added sugar, caramel or boisé.
