Passionate about gastronomy and oenology, I will be happy to pass on our know-how from our ancestral traditions. I am living in Normandy for more than 10 years, and I discovered a region rich in a so special spirit that I decided to share with the greatest number its history and the secrets of its manufacture.

The Calvados experience is unexpectedly a nice little show of creating a positive attitude of the visitor towards Calvados liquid. The history and production process will be elucidated in a nutshell. And at the end some tasting guided by a Calvados expert will be the last finishing touch to the knowledge developed at the visitor which is just enough to create the basis of buying moment at the shop at te end of experience. Let's be honest this is the whole objective of this experience ;-) If the intention of the visitor is to go to a shop and buy for the first time a nice bottle (one or more) of Calvados at a little too high price then you are at the right spot and you are warm welcomed by very kind sales staff. If you want to get the real story behind a local Calvados product, go to a domain and enjoy the real artwork of traditional Calvados production which is done by generations in the family. It experience is a matter of taste and what the visitor expect. Last but not least, enjoy Calvados. Salute.

Like all big distilleries, it was very modern and some what clinical, until we arrived in the tasting room. That is where it became more fun and interactive. Having the ability to interact and then sample Calvados was enjoyable and the host was excellent

Vraiment très chouette visite. Au travers de plusieurs salles interactives style parc d'attraction vous êtes plonges dans l'histoire du Calvados et de sa région. Même si ma partie dégustation est plus pour adulte, la visite convient super bien aux familles. Vraiment à faire !)!!!

Het lijkt alsof je een heel persoonlijke ervaring gaat krijgen, maar het is eigenlijk een soort museum waarna je wat mag proeven en de winkel wordt ingeleid.

De experience was anders dan verwacht. Het proces van appel naar Calvados wordt op een bijzondere visuele manier uitgelegd. Heel verrassend! De proeverij en uitleg was professioneel en vriendelijk.
