From apple to La Chouette…
The story of La Chouette
« La Chouette » – which means “The Owl” in French – refers to the surprising bond between the night bird and French cider.
Traditionally, many farmers in the North-West of France made their own cider with apples from their orchards. In fact, cider was made in barns where owls could often be seen dwelling under the roof.
Thus « La Chouette » has always looked after French cider!
