  • Local cidery that also has local calvedos - an apple brandy, I think, rather potent but quite good. Odd, slightly disturbing guest there from California - not associated with them - who wanted picture...  more »

  • Great shop! Great cider. Stopped here on a tour to do a tasting. Went home with three bottles.
  • A small but good selection of local preserves, cheeses, caramels, juices, and ciders. Friendly staff make this a nice, quick stop for something to take home.
  • The wonderful staff here helped us select a wonderful Calvados to bring home for ourselves (and treats for our family). Knowledgeable and generous with their time and information, we really enjoyed our visit to this distillery. The staff was also bilingual and friendly, all in all, a great experience. Can't wait to order more from this Calvados producer. Oh, and the Calvados--smooth, bourbon-like, and wonderful with an apple-crisp finish.
  • Very friendly people. Got a free degustation and decided to buy the "Saporange". A cider based liquor with a fresh orange taste. It's sold in a classy bottle that can be used as a fancy water bottle afterwards.
  • over the top!
