Small Farm production of Calvados for 3 generations, in the heart of the Calvados Domfrontais Appellation dâ Origine ControllÃ©e AOC area. Made with a minimum one third pears and apples for the balance it is rustic, farm style and smell. Truly for the locals. No compromises...meaning, that it is absolutely authentic, but also fruitier and rounder when young than Pays dâAuge Calvados that require more ageing. Also famous for its apple and pear cider: They are 100% pure juice like all French ciders or Perry must be by law and no addition of anything but sulphite under strict conditions is permitted. This is very important to bear in mind when in most countries of the world ciders can have up to 45 % water added , with sugar, aromatics synthetic or natural, sugar, alcohol, preservatives etc.
