"Craft"

  

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
