    From de distillery website:

    Located in Normandy on the Cider Route, in the heart of the Pays d'Auge, The family-owned estate Pierre Huet produces and markets Calvados, Pommeau de Normandie and Cider.

    More than 25 varieties of apples are grown on the 30 hectares of orchards composed of either standard trees or cordons trees.

    Thanks to the favourable terroir for apple growing, The Pierre Huet Estate produces and markets worldwide, following severe requirements, four out of the six AOC (registered designation of origine) cider products of Normandy:

    - Calvados Pays d'Auge

    - Calvados

    - Pommeau de Normandie

    - Cider Pays d'Auge.

    Nowadays, the Estate also produces and markets:

    - Poiré

    - Cream Pierre Huet

    - Green apple cream

    - Liqueur de poire au Calvados

    - Apple juice

    - Cider vinegar.

    After more than one century of production, the Huet family has gained recognition worldwide for the subtle and delicate art of blends. The calvados "Tradition", "Cordon Argent" and "Cordon d'Or" represent the pride of the Estate.

    Since 1921, the Calvados Huet has often been rewarded for the best know-how.

    In 2010, a new reception area with a shop and a distillery was built on the estate.

    The distillery now has two stills : a pot still for the AOC Calvados Pays d'Auge production and a column still for the Calvados AOC production.

    In a sustainable development prospective, the Huet Family has replaced the oil previously used to heat the stills by wood chips. This system thus established is not only more economical but also more ecological as the wood chips are produced on the estate.

    To go further in a sustainable production and to take into account the current issue of energy saving, the pot still has been modified to make direct use of the hot water produced by the cooler. This water can warm up the premises during winter.
