Area of apple trees, the Pays d'Auge is famous for its cider production carrying an AOC quality label. The 40-kilometre "Route du Cidre" cider trail, which passes through typical villages, such as Cambremer, Beuvron-en-Auge and Bonnebosq, is a must for visitors.
Calvados is a cider brandy that also carries the AOC quality label. The traditional Normandy "trou" is a glass of calvados served in the middle of a meal. Pommeau, another local speciality, is an aperitif made of calvados and apple juice.
In Normandy, one geographical area of production allowed for Calvados, there are three Appellations d'Origine Contôlées: Calvados Pays d'Auge Calvados Calvados Domfrontais.
These three areas have been identified by name Institut National des Appellations d'Origine (INAO).
It is within each of these geographic areas that must be performed all the operations resulting in the production of eaux-de-vie: apple harvest, manufacture and distillation of ciders, aging eaux-de-vie .
A procedure for analytical and organoleptic tests accompanies the various stages of manufacture.
