The estate's organic cider is distilled in June each year, using a copper clad column still. 'Hors D'Age' refers to it's ageing of at least 8 years, in Limousin oak barrels. Well balanced, smooth and persistent appley flavours sweep over the palate.
Domaine des Cinq Autels
This Normandy cider is made from more than 15 varieties of apples planted on 9 hectares of land owned by Jean-Rene Pitrou. The varieties have been specially selected to give the optimum cider experience: 60–70% give bitter-sweet fruit, 15% are sharp and zesty and the remainder are what the producer describes as ‘tangy’. The estate has been organic since 1967.
