With optimal preservation conditions (constant cellar temperature), Calvados can be kept about 10 years.


The Calvados AOC Pays d’Auge is obtained through a process of double distillation of cider in a traditional copper still called “alambic à repasse” (which translates as a “double distillation still”). First, the juice obtained by pressing the apples is completely fermented (12 months) in one-hundred-year-old oak barrels.

Our still is heated by an innovative and unique process in Normandy: woodchips. Woodchips produced on the Estate serves as ecological combustible.

The cider is heated once for the first distillation. These cooled and condensed alcohol vapors are between 30 and 35% proof.

The second heater is to distill the “petites eaux”. Only the heart of the distillation is retained. Calvados obtained is 70% proof.
