Maison Drouin is a family-owned Pays d’Auge craft distillery nestling in the middle of a traditional high stem orchard and specialising in the crafting of vintage Calvados.
It also offers a unique range of blends and limited editions which have received over 230 gold medals in various spirits competitions.
For three generations the Christian Drouin family distillery, housed on a property boasting typical 17th century Pays d’Auge architecture in the lush, leafy setting of the Touques valley, has been offering visitors an immersion in the history and world of Calvados, ciders, perries and Pommeau de Normandie.
No less than 25 cider apple varieties are grown on the high stem trees (traditional, non-intensive) surrounding this typical Pay d’Auge cider farm. Production also takes place on the historic farm in Gonneville-sur-Honfleur, as well as in Drouin’s cellar in Domfront.
Christian Drouin Calvados are exported to 55 countries where you will find them in wine stores, top restaurants, hotels and cocktail bars. They have picked up more than 230 gold medals in international spirits competitions, including the title of Best European Spirits Producer at the 2013 ISWC in London, World’s Best Calvados at the World Drinks Award in 2017, and 2019 Spirit of the Year bestowed by the Revue du Vin de France.
Located 15 minutes from Deauville, 20 minutes from Honfleur, and 2 kilometres from Pont l’Evêque, the estate is open to visitors throughout the year, from Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tour are free for individual visitors, with a charge for groups. Several workshops are run throughout the summer including cocktail workshops and traditional bread baking.
