Since the 1800's, the Camut family has grown 115 acres of apple trees in the Pays d'Auge, the finest growing region for Calvados. In Normandy, 800 types of apples are grown; the Camut family grow about 25 of these, all of which are hand-harvested at optimum maturity between October and mid-December. While pears are allowed in Calvados (actually mandatory in the Domfrontais region with a minimum of 30%), only cider-apples grown on the Camut property are used in Camut Calvados. For the last century Camut has been the single supplier of the various Presidents of the French Republic. Camut is almost alone in lowering the ABV of his cider distillate prior to ageing in casks and added to the other secret know-how it results in a Calvados completely different from the traditional styles.
