Did you know fact

Pays d’Auge region has a variety of soils from sandy and silty to clay and chalk, each lending themselves to different apple varieties. The 20+ apple varieties in Calvados are separated into four categories: bitter/sour apples have rugged tannins and heady aromas; sweet apples are rich in sugars for fermentation; bitter/sweet apples provide complexity and added sugars; sour/bitter apples’ tartness provide freshness and acidity. The secret of Busnel’s exceptional richness is a tradition carefully handed down since 1820.
