After a lot of researching on a selection of local varietals rich in fruity flavours, driving the fermentation and the distillation so as to preserve the fineness of aromas, and a floral bouquet of ripe apples, the distiller, Hervé Seznec is proud to introduce you to Gwen, Blanche de Pommes to serve on its own, cool, or in cocktails (punch, apple juice, …).
All the know-how of the distiller has been invested in this new spirit of cider, white, clear, and critalline with a powerful aromatic richness.
Located in Brittany, all the Manoir du Kinkiz ciders are made using traditional methods: Apples are harvested by hands and from the Manoir's orchard. They are 100% pure juice like all French ciders or Perry must be by law and no addition of anything but sulphite under strict conditions is permitted. This is very important to bear in mind when in most countries of the world ciders can have up to 45 % water added , with sugar, aromatics synthetic or natural, sugar, alcohol, preservatives etc. This Manoir du Kinkiz is famous for its Cidre de Cornouailles, one of the most recent “AOC” Apellation d’ Origine Controllée” where the cider is intense, orange in colour, and very bitter/sweet. Some of these characteristics attached the region of French Cornwall (Cornouailles) are found also in its other ciders in a lesser degree.
