Christian Drouin


From 1971 to 2014, the Christian Drouin distillery was awarded with over 400 medals in the Calvados competitions. To obtain a juice containing the desired sugar, tannin and acidity levels, a good blend of sweet, sweet-bitter, bitter and sour apples is required: the orchard of the “Coeur de Lion” estate is a traditional high-trunk orchard whose production started in 2008, producing traditional varieties of apples, hard to find on the market. The selection of these varieties was carried out so as to ensure the best balance between the four types of apples.
