Domaine des Cinq Autels
Domaine des Cinq Autels started the production of cider in 1984. Previously, the company’s organic agricultural production was led by Maurice Pitrou, the father of Jean René. In 1967, Maurice Pitrou realized the harmful effects of using fertilizer products and decided to change its methods into an organic way of production. They have continued the organic practice to produce high-quality products in the most eco-friendly and healthy way. Today, 30 years later, they are still as convinced by this choice and are making ciders (and cognac!) with the same passion.

Calvados VSOP, Cinq Autels 200ml
A fine and hearty apple brandy from the edge of the Pays d’Auge, south-east of Caen. The estate has been in organic production since 1965 (when I was still in short trousers). Using a blend of fifteen ancient varieties of Nor mandy cooking, dessert and cider apples, Jean Domaine des Cinq Autels produces high quality Calvados VSOP, with a minimum age of 5 years. Ageing takes place in large oak barrels – giving rise to a naturally deep amber colour, softly oaky flavour and a firm, well-balanced style with typically rich and lingering apple character. Delicious as an aperitif, digestive, or as a versatile ingredient in sweet and savoury cuisine.
“The soil of coastal Normandy, especially the Pays dAuge, produces the tannic cider apples that make Calvados one of the worlds great brandies.” Michael Jackson, THE OBSERVER.
