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.
General Agricultural Competition – Paris:
Gold medal in 2004 and 2005
Bronze medal in 2006 and 2010.

Festival de Cornouaille – Quimper:
Gold medal in 2006
Silver medal in 2008 and 2009
Bronze medal in 2010

Concours de Fouesnant:
Gold medal in 2006
Silver medal in 2005 and 2009

Brut farm-produced cider

Brut and lighter than the PDO Cornouaille cider, this one is ideal for grills, pancakes (in France we prefer the term ‘crêpes’) or just for a refreshing break.

Concours de Fouesnant:

Bronze medal in 2005 & 2006
Gold medal in 2009

Received the gold trophy for the Breton Gastronomy in 2005

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.

Nordlys back into the water

Nordlys back into the water

Nordlys news

As you know Nordlys has been on the slipway in France for a few weeks now.

Wednesday hte 11th of Nov 2015 she has been put back into the water again. However still staying on the trailer to be sure she is not leaking any more.
There is still lots of work to be done while she will be moored in Douarnenez. But people are working hard to get Nordlys sailing north again within a month or so..
We’ll keep you posted about her progress.

Damage on Nordlys

Repairs on Nordlys

During the last weeks Nordlys has been repaired. Her stern was badly damaged and the poophouse (little building for the toilet at the aft of the ship) had to get major renovation. As you can see at the pictures below a lot has been repaired and refitted and Nordlys is starting to get back in shape again. Thanks to local carpenters , steelworkers, electricians and off course her own loyal crew. The same crew who has been working on her last refit in Den Helder are working hard to make her sea worthy again. A big thank you to them!

Crew Nordlys

Nordlys back into the water

An exiting moment. Nordlys goes back into the water again. She will stay a little while on the trailer to be sure she is afloat and not leaking. After that she will be moved to a quay to get some more repairs done above the waterline.

The tug assisting Nordlys while in the water

After a short stay on the trailer of the slipway Nordlys has been “sailing” a little bit together with a tug. The tug helped Nordlys to her current spot in the harbour of Douarnenez, France.

Sail A Future: Setbul,Portugal 2014 by Paulo Gloria

4 young talentfull dancers came to dance on a sail, sailed from Holland by the Tres Hombres
They danced the paint all over the sail, inspired by the dance of the hands of Tanner from South Africa.
The couloured surface was transformed into a wonderfull painting by two Dominican artists.
