Guy Le Lay was the original inventor of the first Breton Pommeau, launched in December 1986 initially under the name ‘Apéritif des Menhirs’ then ‘Pommeau des Menhirs’. A more marked structure and tannic character differentiates Breton Pommeau from its Norman counterpart. It also has a higher sugar content (123 g per litre compared with 108 g per litre).
The distillery’s 40 hectares of orchards means it can control all stages of the spirit’s production.
Its Pommeaux AOC are today the most awarded in Brittany.
