The Normandyjug is a popular, quirky drink in the region of Normandy. Made from apples and aged in oak barrels, it is a strong and very satisfying aperitif that helps to take the sting out of the grey, cold winter months.
CALVADOES, a favorite of the Normans, and POMMEAU, another apple-based regional beverage, are also great for an “aperitif”. The best way to experience the local tastes is to take a tour and learn about the different varieties of cider and wine produced in the area.
