Until the beginning of the 19th century, Calvados was a local alcohol produced at farms and mainly destined for family consumption. In 1820, the young Ernest Busnel settled with his family in the heart of the Pays d’Auge, in Pont l’Evêque. He joined forces with Mrs. Quetel who selected at Auge farms the eau de vie that they matured in their cellars. Busnel assists in a triple emergence: emergence of love for the countryside, emergence of passion for the apple and the emergence of a Calvados that will become BUSNEL. Today at Busnel, time is an irreplaceable ally recognized for its value. It has allowed, for 4 generations, the creation of Calvados of great tradition. Today the Master Cellar at the Distillerie Busnel is the holder of this know-how and continues the tradition.
