The elaboration of our ciders

From the apple to the glass of cider...

We work with over a hundred of suppliers who deliver us high-quality fruits picked at optimum ripeness. The apples, most of which are old varieties, come from traditional orchards not farther than 20 km from the cidrerie. Such a supplying allows not only the obtention of a cider with complex flavours, but it also participates to the protection of biodiversity and bocage landscape.

Each apple variety possesses particular gustatory characteristics.

They are usually classified in 4 main groups :

pommes-rouges
