Calvados is a distilled drink made from cider and perry, Calvados is produced in Normandy.

Nowadays better known abroad than in France, it benefits from a simple system of appellations that guarantees its uniqueness and quality. Under a single generic appellation Calvados AOC there are three sub-appellations linked to distinct terroirs and techniques. 'Pays d'Auge' for distilled spirits in recipe-based and cider-based stills only; "Domfrontais" for those distilled in column stills with a minimum of 30% perry; and "Blanche de Normandie" for non-aged spirits. For each, apple orchards are made up of at least 20% of local varieties, about 70% of bitter or sweet varieties and up to 15% of acid varieties.
