The apple is the basic ingredient to make quality Calvados. The mild and damp weather and clayed soil of the Pays d’Auge give the Château du Breuil ideal growing conditions for its 22,000 apple trees which surround the castle.
The Château du Breuil company produces its own cider, coming from a 100% natural fermentation. Their know-how and experience are the strengths of the Château du Breuil which gives priority to high quality rather to quantity. When cider has reached its proper flavour, distillation can start.
