Calvados Berneroy is the famous French brand that currently belongs to the Cognac house Camus. For the first time, Calvados Berneroy went on sale around middle of the 20th century and in a relatively short time gained a reputation as a high-quality premium drink. In 2007, the company Camus, headed by a representative of the fifth generation of the family Cyril Camus, bought the rights to produce Calvados under the brand Berneroy.
It is worth noting that after the change of ownership, the Berneroy brand did not surrender, but only strengthened its title as one of the best Calvados. Founded in 1863, the house of Camus strictly follows the quality of its products and follows its basic principles, such as independence, ancient traditions and innovations.
French Calvados Berneroy is made according to the age-old traditions, which were used by masters in the 50s of the XVI century. The raw materials for the drink are selected apples grown in the endless gardens of Normandy (Northern France). These special apples guarantee a flavored, complex and perfectly balanced drink. Thanks to the brilliant knowledge of alcoholic art and an impressive experience, the masters of Camus manage to control carefully every stage of a complex production process.
After several preliminary production stages, apple cider is sent for distillation, and the resulting spirits are aged in French oak barrels. In the process of aging, Calvados Berneroy acquires distinct creamy tones, as well as notes of vanilla, baked apples and licorice. The exclusive style of all drinks at cognac house Camus, masters can be achieved by blending apple spirits of various exposures.
