An extremely good value for money tour, conducted bilingual in around an hour, with tastings at the end from a choice of three price points. Informative, not at all stuffy, and you get to taste - and buy if you wish, but without pressure.

A really enjoyable tour, very interesting and the kids loved it too. Tried lots of Calvados and the kids had apple juice. Charlotte, our guide, was lovely and spoke perfect English.

We dropped in because we know the Boulard Calvados name and it wasn't very far off of our intended path, and found the location by GPS and signage. Really a top notch distillery with stills, cooperage barrels and bottles of Calvados readily available for tasting....More

We chose this distillery based on previous reviews that suggested there might be tours available in English, and the fact that they are open Sundays. It was a bit confusing to get there as our GPS couldn't zero in the exact location, but we managed...More
