CIDER & OUR SAILORS

We owe the heritage of cider in France to the sailors who brought it back from the Iberian coast. As early as the 17th century, besides its beneficial virtues, sailors would toast at sea with cider for pleasure as well as for strength to face storms. Inspired by these men of the sea, we sublimate cider by giving it strength together with elegance. The secret composition of our cider draws its influences from the recipe of the family blend of the Kermasson of Kerisel, of which Théo descended: A long line of naval officers of the French Navy dating back to 1780, as well as a traditional cider-making family since the end of the XIXth century.
