Cornouaille cider

This Cornouaille cider has a brilliant golden yellow colour, with fruity aromas of apples, peaches and honey.

The taste is balanced between a soft attack, a nice amplitude and a subtly bitter finish.

It is a cider of connoisseurs and goes wonderfully well with Breton food.

Ethical project of the Cidrerie Melenig

The Melenig cider factory’s goal is to support a sustainable business. We believe that the human being only blossoms by developing quality relationships with nature, with the older generations and with people around him today. Therefore, special care on these three areas is taken. Some of the actions needed to fulfill our goal are realized, and the remainder will be done in the medium-to-long term.

Connection to nature

Our cider factory is located in a region characterized by different natural and man-made landscapes: plateaux, hills, valley bottoms, orchards, wet meadows. To enhance and make durake this natural wealth, we are working on several aspects:

– Producing enough quality apples to ensure an independent supply for the cider factory,
– Limiting pollution: excluding chemical inputs (organic certification), processing the cider factory’s sewages and limiting the energy consumption (manual fruit collection, limitation of treatment with copper, bottle recycling),
– Increasing biodiversit: by protecting woodland areas and embankments and maintaining the orchards’ ground cover,
– Protecting the natural beauty of the landscape,
– Developing the human-nature relationship.
