I can’t begin to say enough good about my visit to Chateau du Breuil calvados distillery. The discussion on calvados and such is up at Blackfive, but here I want to share a bit of the beauty of the place.
The roof of what is now the storage building was made by shipwrights to resemble an upside-down ship — in the 17th century.
There is, of course, more:
Some of the storage within the storage building
Some of the detail in the ceiling
One of the buildings on site, a former factory in years past
Some detail from the apple statue near the guest center
A different view of the statue
The moist climate is great for apples and dairy, but what it does to wood makes for great photographs
and a final view of the magnificent roof of the storage facility. While it is up at Blackfive, I also want to post the video of the virtual tour here as well.
Some excellent libations
