My partner and I are visiting Honfleur for a few days and are passionate about local produce, so we decided today to drive down to visit the Calvados Christian Drouin distillery. It was very quiet but we were greeted warmly by a gentleman who gave us some warm cider. He then took us on a tour and gave us a great insight to the workings of the distillery. This was followed by a generous tasting of several varieties and ages of Calvados (VSOP, XO, Hors d’Ages) plus cider, pommeau and gin. All in all a great find and we came away with a bag full of goodies. Well worth a visit.

I already loved calvados before the tour. Our guide however was exceptional and made the tour a memorable experience even if you never heard of the beverage calvados before in your life. The ground themselves are in a fairly rural setting. The process is unique compared to whiskey distilleries and wineries. The end result is unique and I think absolutely sublime! I have vintage calvados from this producer in my cellar at home so to actually visit the producer was a real treat. The tasting at the end of the tour is very generous and with no charge is worth a drive.

A short drive from Honfleur is this beautiful working distillery where you can walk through the grounds and there was a guided tour available but there was a coach party there when we arrived. The one staff member was rushed off her feet with selling the coach party small loaves of bread & doing tastings! But was friendly & also appeared fluent in English & German. If you like gin, I don’t, my wife does they do an excellent Calvados gin I took a sniff & the botanicals smelled like the perfect mix.

Very interesting, relaxing place. And amazing calvados degustation. Friendly service, not push-selling, but allowing you to really understand your preference. Great!

Went on a drive to the Normandy coast in France and visited several producers of Brandy in the Calvados region. This area is known for several of their apple based adult drinks and the brandy produced by Christian Drouin was one of my favorites based on the different test tastes I did. If you do not like Brandy, the drive alone is worth it so bring the family.
