Sawdays have created a new campaign to encourage travel to the wonderful region of Normandy, France – to visit cider and calvados producers.

They’ve put together two unique itineraries and some fun and informative illustrations with tips from “Food and Normandy cider pairings” to a “handy cider phrasebook” and “What kind of calvados drinker are you?” to make travelling to the region and visiting the recommended producers more enjoyable.

Within the campaign they are promoting:


As part of our campaign, we are about to open a competition with Brittany Ferries and the Normandy Tourist Board to win the shorter of the two tours, a 3 night “Petit Voyage” of Normandy.

The prize includes return ferry crossings from Portsmouth to Le Havre, overnight stays at the inspiring and beautiful haven of Le Manoir des Impressionnistes near Honfleur, at an ancient timber town house owned by a vivacious cookery writer On Rue Tatin in Eure and at Le Fresnay in rural Calvados.

Each day the winner will visit orchards, see how cider and calvados are made and find local producers waiting to top up their glass. To complete the cider experience, they will even dine at tables made from ancient calvados barrels at Restaurant Les Tonneaux du Père Magloire.

Get involved!
