Normandy is an area of rich culinary tradition based on fine local products of butter, cream, world famous cheeses and apples from which the brandy Calvados, the aperitif Pommeau and delicious cider are made.
After a pleasant drive through the green Normandy countryside, you’ll arrive at the Théo Capelle distillery, which first produced cider in 1981. This distillery specialises in cider and Calvados. After a short visit you will be invited to taste some of the famous Normandy drinks such as Calvados, Cider, and Pommeau.
Your next stop is the village of Sortosville-en-Beaumont, where the popular La Maison du Biscuit is located. This family run business started in 1903 with a traditional bakery and grew in popularity over the years due to the quality of the produce and the well kept secrets of the various homemade recipes.
Following this success, La Maison du Biscuit was launched in the 1980’s and extended in 2010. During your time here enjoy a tea, coffee or hot chocolate with homemade biscuits, before some free time to browse the various parts of the shop.
The return drive to Cherbourg will take you through the picturesque Normandy countryside.
