René Gilbert founded Coquerel Calvados. He settled in the Manoir du Coquerel, in Milly, in the Manche department, a few kilometers from Mont-Saint-Michel.
We produce our calvados from around forty varieties of apples and cider pears from Normandy, all certified AOC calvados.
These fruits come from our orchards and those of neighboring farms with which we have been working for several decades.
A rich ecosystem and unique ancestral practices.
In spring, due to the large number of fruit varieties we use, flowering lasts about two months (April - May), thus allowing us to significantly reduce the impact of climatic phenomena.
Pollination is largely carried out by bees, which return naturally to our orchards each year.
Until the end of the summer, cows and sheep come to graze in the orchards, thus participating in the natural fertilization of the soil, the mowing of the grass and the natural thinning of the apple trees by coming to feed on the first fruits. often fallen crooked.
