Mars Angels are made of 13 years old Pays d'Auge calvados which was finished during 8 months in 3 former casks from the very exclusive Mars Distillery in Japan.
The tree casks were previously used for aging Mars single Malt Komagatake.
The 3 casks being made of american oak, this Pays d'Auge calvados was re-qualified as an Eau de Vie de Cidre to conform with the Pays d'Auge appellation rules. The Eau de vie was bottled at 43%.vol. The nose offers a great balance between fresh apples and barley, hints a pear and peach. Mars Angels is a very delicate spirit, with an elegant mouth.
A subtle marriage between Normandy and Japan.
Three generations of the Drouin family have produced quality Calvados in the Pays d'Auge region, seeking to express the full complexity of the Normand cider apple varieties. As head of the Calvados Christian Drouin company, Guillaume Drouin represents the third generation of a family that has always been fascinated by the search for a perfect balance between different aromas and flavours. Guillaume Drouin is a qualified oenologist and agronomist. After acquiring experience in the elds of wine-making and rum he joined the family business in 2004. Working with his father on the aging of calvados, he took part in the creation of the company's great blends while looking for new product ranges that would highlight original aromatic associations. Guillaume is a man full of curiosity and enthusiasm. His passion for the world of flavours, tasting and the art of blending soon led him towards a new creation, that of a Gin based on the apples from his orchards. Thanks to its method of production and the number of aromatic substances that compose it, this Gin is without any doubt the spirit that offers the broadest possible spectre of composition: an almost in nite eld for creativity, a challenge both rich and fascinating in the search for symbiosis between apples, juniper and aromatics of world-wide origin.
