This 'Calvados' (French apple brandy) earthenware bottle was created in the Normandy Region of the north of France, famous for its 'Calvados' apple brandy. It comes complete with it's 'Norman head' stopper (which is in the shape of a man in his nightcap - presumably because once you've had a tipple, as a digestif, you'll feel sleepy!) 
It would make an excellent gift for a friend or host/hostess filled with your own home-made cider, brandy or sloe gin. A stylish way to present your homemade Liqueur!
It's a wonderful, quirky collectors' piece and is certainly a stylish way to serve and present your digestif. Fabulously characterful it will be a real 'talking point' at dinner parties.

Calvados is distilled from cider made from specially grown and selected apples. The fruit is harvested and pressed into a juice that is fermented into a dry cider. It is then distilled into eau de vie. After two years of ageing in oak casks, it can be sold as Calvados. The longer it is aged, the smoother the drink becomes. Usually, the maturation goes on for several years. 
These bottles can be found in many different sizes, throughout the Calvados region, each one is individually hand thrown and decorated with handmade 'apple' clay details. 

It is in perfect condition with no chips, scratches or cracks. It has a pouring lip and handle, stands 28cms/11inches tall and weighs 900gms/2lbs.

It would also look great hanging from your rustic farmhouse beams!.............
