Pommeau de Normandie is a blend made of three parts of fresh cider apple juice and one part of calvados. The appellation requires a minimum ageing of 14 months in oak barrels after the blend is made. However this Pommeau de Normandie is aged from three to four years. This extra ageing enables Comte Louis de Lauriston to obtain a better balance with no apparent alcohol. They also take particular care in the choice of the apples used so as to obtain the perfect flavour, neither too sweet nor too heavy. Its apple aromas, fruit exuberance and moderate sweetness make it many people’s favoured aperitif.

For centuries, the farmers of the Domfront region have been producing a spirit in which a high proportion of pears was blended with cider apples. Pears seem to have become part of the cider brewing and distilling process in the 14th century. The particularities of Calvados from the Domfront region were recognized in 1942 by the attribution of a regulated appellation, “Calvadosdu Domfrontais”. Domfront is well known for its large number of pear orchards, and the Calvados made in this region has always possessed a unique character much appreciated by connoisseurs
