About
Depuis 26 ans nous proposons un large choix de Calvados, répartis sur tous les départementsde production normands. Selon les régions et les méthodes de distillation, il existe en Normandie trois appellations d'origine contrôlées. Agés de 2 ans jusqu'au millésime 1865, chaque Calvados a sa typicité et son histoire. Du plus fruité au plus boisé, du plus vif au plus rond, du meilleur marché à l'incroyablement cher, la caviste se fera un plaisir de vous transmettre ses connaissances et ainsi à dénicher le flacon qui sera "votre " Calvados

    Happy memories
    We only went into this shop to check out some Calvados to take home. We were welcomed by Oscar who treated us to an educational tasting session. Lots of samples, lots of helpful information by someone who really knows his stuff and so much fun! We were so impressed by his knowledge and passion for the subject and will remember the shopping experience for a long time! It is lovely when something like this happens so spontaneously and we will remember the day for a long time. And Oscar, if you are reading this - we hope you did well in your competition.

    Supreme !
    First visited this specialist shop 3 years ago, when we were impressed with the information about various types of Calvados, and the willingness of the owner to spend time explaining quite fine points to us. So, visiting Honfleur on a cruise, we had an action replay in May 2015 and again all our questions were answered.The difference between "woody" and "fruity" was explained, and we were invited to taste the difference,and also compare the different ages of the many products. I purchased a bottle of 15 yr. old calvados for my brother, who is a bit of a connoisseur.He had been amazed at the quality of a bottle I gave him from my earlier visit, so no doubt he'll be a happy chappy come Christmas 2015. I don't know whether the prices represent value for money, as I can't compare them, but I do know the products from this establishment are excellent quality. Well worth a visit.

    Taste and story of Normandy's Calvados & Co.
    On a rainy day during our holiday in Honfleur stopped in this cosy, original store. In contrast to other tourist stores, this one is really specialized in Calvados, related Aperitifs and Cider. Authentic and excellent guidance by the owner, who is happy to introduce you into the basics on how his products are fabricated and answers patiently all your questions. Tasting included. Of course we bought Calvados and Apple Liqueur. Back at home, we enjoy a really good drink with memories of a surprisingly nice experience in a little shop in the heart of Honfleur.

Lovely owner that will be happy to explain about calvados. We were very impressed by the variety of calvados in the display and the variety of different calvados to taste. There are other apple-products as well (ciders, liquors and such), but the place mainly celebrates the existence of calvados.

We called in here for some regional treats and did we get a treat indeed. The owner/shopkeeper was welcoming from the door bell onwards. We were offered tasters of all produce that interested us. The calvados and liqueur was a hit along with the retro biscuit tins and the Madeleines. Do not drive past. Pop in for a sip and an informative chat if nothing else. A truly top experience.

What a treasure house of Calvados and associated ciders this place is. Various bottles of many vintages available and tastings offered to serious buyers. The staff were so helpful and prices very sensible especially for the 12/15 and 20 year old vintages, Could have spent longer tasting and spent more. Will be returning at the earliest opportunity.

The shop itself is set in the delightful town of Honfleur. The folk inside are helpful and knowledgeable about cider and calvados. You can sample the products, which, in the case of Calvados, can range from young and affordable to mature and complex, and can be expensive. Cider comes in a range from dry to sweet. The true taste of Normandy!

Had no idea about calavados or cider products but I have now! The lovely proprietress took time and trouble to show us a range that suited our price and pocket. A great experience and came away with quality goods for us and presents at a good price.
thoroughly recommend a visit.

this shop has an amazing selection of Normandy Spirits, the famous CALVADOS but also some ciders and Poiré.

Their range of CALVADOS is large, from small distillers to larger ones , with even bottles of more than 50 years.

You're invited to try and discover other flavours than what you know about Calvados, ie closer to old Armagnac or Cognac than cider's spirit !

Worth a stop, and ask to see the older bottles ( 1945, 1939, and 19th century bottles)
