Château du Breuil
23 Route de Fougère, 41700 Cheverny, France
Château du BreuilThe premium apple brandy known as calvados is one of Normandy’s signature products, and the Château du Breuil is one of its most prestigious makers. The family-owned estate runs a 40-minute tour, available in English, that takes you through the process (the cider is distilled twice and aged in oak barrels). You also get a history of the 16th-century château, a beautiful slate-roofed castle surrounded by 22,000 apple trees. Tours and tastings are given every day.
