The story of Drouin Calvados began around 1960. There was nothing to indicate that Christian Drouin was destined to make a career in spirits. Nothing, that is, apart from his taste for good food and good wines. When he bought a farm he decided to use the cider-apple orchards to produce calvados. His aims were simple; produce the best, top-quality spirit. The first "Pomme Prisonniere" was marketed by Calvados Christian Drouin in 1981.
Since that time, "Pomme Prisonniere" has been so successful that the trade mark "Pomme Prisonniere" is now often mistaken for a generic name. Today the third generation is hard at work and in this time has achieved no fewer than 127 Gold medals.
