As long as apples grow to be bitter, bitter-sweet, sweet and acidic, the variety of flavors will continue to be wide. Cider is a universal drink, as it can be both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Calvados, on the other hand, is a strong liquor, typically aged for about one year. Pommeau is another spirit drink made of unfermented apple juice.

The best time to visit cider region is during the apple harvest, that is from September to November depending on the variety of course. That is also the season when spirits production takes place.
