The Dupont Family have been working towards the highest quality Calvados for 25 years now, with Etienne at its helm until his death in 2018.
Production is now overseen by his son Jerome. Viewing their production like wine, they realised that with hand harvesting, and by adopting other oenological techniques, they could achieve an elegance and refinement in their produce that they had not previously acheived. Only the best apples are picked to go into the blend, which can be up to 13 different varieties. The fermented apples rest for 6 months on the lees before double distillation and maturation in oak casks. Famille Dupont now produce some top vintage ciders and calvados from their 30ha estate.
