Located in the Normandy Bocage, Calvados Préaux upholds the tradition of Calvados making, crafting products of the highest quality.

Calvados Préaux is loc­ated in the heart of the Dom­fron­tais Appel­la­tion. Estab­lished in 1934, our products are the result of many gen­er­a­tions of savoir-faire.

The typ­i­city of our products is ensured by the judi­cious blend­ing of Calvados from the dis­til­la­tion of cider apples and perry pears, a spe­cialty of the Dom­fron­tais appellation.

Our recently ren­ov­ated pro­duc­tion facil­it­ies provide per­fect con­di­tions for each stage in the craft­ing of our products.

Our Calvados is aged entirely in oak bar­rels (of which there are over 1,400 housed in our cel­lars), which brings out the full expres­sion of the aromas and cre­ates a product that is appre­ci­ated by con­nois­seurs around the world.

We source our fruit from our own orch­ard as well as from 800 local pro­du­cers whose orch­ards are mostly made up of high stem trees grow­ing sweet, bit­ter­sweet and bitter varieties.

The fruit is mainly picked by hand to ensure that we bring in a high-qual­ity harvest.

After being thor­oughly cleaned, the fruit is mashed, and the juice is then extrac­ted in the press. This juice is then stored in stain­less-steel vats, where the fer­ment­a­tion is closely mon­itored by our cellar master.
The best time to distil the ciders will then by care­fully chosen (in com­pli­ance with the Appel­la­tions’ spe­cific­a­tions) to pre­serve the finest aromas and thus ensure the qual­ity of the final dis­tilled product, the Calvados.

These Calvados will then be blen­ded to offer our cus­tom­ers products of the highest pos­sible quality.
