About the estate
The name Claque-Pepin comes from a type of apple variety, which when ripe, rattles when shaken. It translates to the seeds (pepin) which rattle (claque). The property is located in the 17th century farm next to the ancient Château of Serans, formerly the family estate of the Louvet family. Claque-Pepin officially began 13 years ago, however, current owner Benoit Louvet has been immersed in the world of distilling and aging for many years. He began his “apprenticeship” fairly young with his grandfather Vital. After working for a few other Calvados producers as cellar master, he decided to start his own artisanal production and perpetuate the art of making calvados, cider and poire, while respecting the Normand tradition and the environment.
