Calvados Christian Drouin 1994, Pays d' Auge is an eau-de-vie made from apples (and sometimes pears) grown in the orchards of north-western France. It comes from a much more defined district than generic Calvados, as its catchment area takes in 290 parishes rather than the full 1550.
These parishes are almost all within the Calvados administrative departement, making Calvados Pays d'Auge arguably the most authentic individual form of the spirit. Originally, a high proportion of Calvados from this area was made with pears. This is a tradition that survives today in the third Calavados appellation
