Founded in the heart of the Pay d’Auge in 1820, Distillerie Busnel is the first major Calvados House. You can visit one of the last great working distilleries and learn all about the production of its Calvados in a typical Normandy setting.

Dis­til­le­rie Busnel is the oldest of the great Calvados houses and is emble­ma­tic of the Normandy ter­roir. In 1820, Ernest Busnel moved to the heart of the Pays D’Auge to pro­duce his Calvados. His son, George, foun­ded Maison Busnel, which qui­ck­ly became a suc­cess. Dis­til­le­rie Busnel still pro­duces its renow­ned Calvados today. It employs 18 people, ages over 5 mil­lion litres of Calvados in its cel­lars, and has been pushing for the pro­mo­tion of Pom­meau de Nor­man­die for years. It is the region’s lea­ding expor­ter and the Busnel brand is avai­lable on all five continents.

Dis­til­le­rie Busnel can be found on the road to Lisieux, in the heart of Normandy’s Pays d’Auge, one of the love­liest regions of France with an outs­tan­ding ter­roir and his­to­ry. In this typi­cal Normandy set­ting, we will tell you of our great love of Calvados and the secrets to its pro­duc­tion. You will visit one of the last great wor­king dis­til­le­ries with its pot stills and its vast cel­lars. You can then enjoy a tas­ting of our most pres­ti­gious Calvados and Pom­meau and then round off your tour by paying a visit to the Maison Busnel shop. Our team will be deligh­ted to receive you and talk you through our many dif­ferent Busnel Calvados and Pom­meau de Normandie.
