The Drouin family has been producing Calvados since the 1960s when Christian Drouin, the
father, a local industrialist, purchased a farm in Gonneville. The goal is clear: to produce great
The Domaine Coeur de Lion is located in this old Norman farmhouse of the 17th century. The
passion, the taste for craftsmanship and the love of the products have been rewarded in three
generations by 154 gold medals.
From the very beginning, Christian Drouin makes a specialty of the rarest and oldest calvados.
The house now offers a range of more than 35 vintages.
“Haute couture” aging
Christian and Guillaume Drouin (second and third generation) pay particular attention to the
aging of their eaux-de-vie. They are inspired by ancient methods and traditions through the use
of sherry or Porto casks, while also explore more innovative aging regimes in Banyuls, Sauternes
or Muscats de Rivesaltes casks, for rare and unusual perfumes.
In order to preserve the signature of Calvados, its fruit, the House favors second fill casks.
