One of the oldest Calvados producers, Busnel Calvados has been produced at the Distillerie Busnel in the famed Pays d’Auge region of Normandy since 1820. Busnel uses sixteen pounds of apples per bottle and over 20 apple varieties to create Calvados vintages, which are dated and indicate the Calvados has been produced from a single distillation, and blends, which mark on the bottle the age of the youngest Calvados used in the blend. Vieille Resérve VSOP is aged for at least 4 years. Busnel Calvados can be enjoyed as an apéritif, in a cocktail, or on the rocks or neat as a digestif (after-dinner drink).

Aromas of fresh pressed cider are supported with a core of earthiness. Medium rich in the mouth, it pleasantly coats the tongue with flavors of golden raisins, honey, and apple seed. The finish is florally perfumed and long lasting.
