Avallen Calvados 70cl
Apple Brandy ABV 40% appealing to everyone from gin drinkers when served long with tonic, to those who enjoy their spirits brown, or even fruity cocktail fans, Avallen is perfect for mixing, as a refreshing spritz, or simply for sipping and won’t leave the planet with a hangover!
Avallen Calvados is a brand with sustainability at its very core. Its creators have two clear missions: to save wild bee populations around the world and to be the world’s most planet-positive spirit brand.
Avallen is aged in French oak casks in the heart of La Manche. The liquid is aged for only two years to ensure it is fresh, crisp and unapologetically apple forward. The whole process is natural, using only wild yeast present on the apple skins and with no added sugar, caramel or boisé – ensuring a 100% natural product.
Avallen is ‘Climate Positive’ (carbon negative) by 2.73kg per bottle through its production process, with no offsetting required. Each bottle only uses 1.2L of water to produce; this is 70-95% less than benchmark spirits.
As members of 1% for the Planet, Avallen gives 1% of everything it sells to environmental and social initiatives.
The nose is a freshly cooked apple pie with a hint of vanilla custard. Its body is richly warming, with cinnamon, vanilla and star anise. Finally, there is a lingering toffee apple finish.
HOW TO ENJOY
The natural way to enjoy Avallen is the signature serve. Take a tall glass filled with ice, add in 50ml Avallen Calvados, pour in 150ml tonic water and add in 2 dashes of your favourite cocktail bitters (optional). Garnish with an apple slice and a geranium flower.
Not a fan of tonic water? Try a ‘True Normand’! Take a tall glass filled with ice, add in 50ml Avallen Calvados, then fill half the remaining space in the glass with fresh pressed apple juice before topping with ginger beer and garnishing with an apple slice.

PLANT A TREE.
We’ll do this every time you shop with us, at no extra cost to you.
UK consumers made 39.4 billion payments in 2018 – if a tree were planted for every one of those transactions things would change very quickly. We want to show other companies – and you – that it’s not difficult to do things differently.
One day it will be as normal to give back as it is to take. Until then, when you shop with companies that don’t embed restoration into your transactions, you can plant a tree yourself every time you buy something! (It costs much less than you might think…)
Thank you for caring and for your support. You’ve just changed the future.
