A Bit more about our cideries

The Dupont Family Cidery

The Louis Dupont Family estate consists of 30 hectares (74 acres) of orchards in Normandy, in the heart of the Pays d'Auge region. They have been producing the finest quality of Cidre for over 125 years.

By drawing on the best techniques used to make cognac and its great blends, Etienne Dupont has studied, tried out and refined his cellar work to reach the same levels of elegance and expressiveness as found in the best wines.

The apples are pressed in a specially modified membrane press normally used in wine making. The grated apples are stirred frequently throughout the slow extraction at low pressures. This technique ensures the skin and pulp are uniformly pressed.

​Fermentation continues slowly in the bottle, and the carbon dioxide that is naturally produced is retained by the cork to create the natural effervescence of Cidre.

We're proud to tell you

  - The year the apples were harvested

  - The type of apples we used

  - The people who picked them ! (it was probably Laurent or Christophe)​

The Huet Family Cidery

Settled in the Normandy countryside the Huet family have been producing the finest quality of Cidre since the mid-19th century. The Cidre is made via a process called Keeving and is 100% natural. We don’t add any nasties to it.

​This region has been making Cidre since the Gauls (that's Asterix and Obelix to me) and that's a lot of 6 Somewheres. The quality is derived from the climate, the soil (Terroir) and a little bit of French "Je ne sais quoi".


​We're proud to tell you

  - The year the apples were harvested

  - The type of apples we used for the different types of cidre

  - Shoot, we'll even tell you who picked them, if you ask ! (it was probably Louis, or Jules)  

Keeving

Keeving is the traditional way of making naturally sweet sparkling Cidre.

Only Cidre apples are used – no water, no sugar, nothing else, nada, niente.

The key principle is to remove nutrients from the juice early in the process, ensuring a long, slow fermentation. This means the Cidre can be bottled while still sweet , without fear of significant re-fermentation at a later date.
