There's a lot of chat nowadays about Craft - what is and isn't considered craft - and a fair bit of protesting  too much.

So we thought we'd show you how the Dupont family do it - and you can make up your own minds if our Cidre can be considered "Craft".

French Cidre Making

These are the guys that make it happen


Jerome and his chief Cidre maker

This is where the magic happens


The cidre is stored under pressure in this VAT

A friend with a lorry turns up


It's then transferred, under pressure, to the lorry

Small batch production at its finest


Where the bottling plant is

Cleaning the bottles before filling


Where it fills the bottles

Stored in wooden pallex


and they get laid down in batches of about 8,000
