    Le Verger Poméloi, cidredie-distillerie

    Working in harmony with nature, we take advantage of the exceptional yeast produced by fruits grown in salty sea air. The juice is slowly cold-fermented to bring out the finest flavours and aromas of our apples and honey. We then process our salt-misted fruits to create four elixirs: “l'Enchanteur de pommes,” “le Chouchen,” “l'Escarbille” and “le Pomeloi” (with an apple in the bottle).

    Les Cultures du large

    Passionate of mariculture, Mr Christian Vigneau start fishing as he was fourteen years old. He own it business La Moule du large inc, since more than ten years. The site offshore to farm his mussels and oysters is at seven kilometres from Cap-aux-Meules wharf. It's the only enterprise in North America to use that method for the production of different products. The oyster and mussel managed to distance themselves from other by being juicier with a more salty taste and fleshy consistency. You can get yours at our office at 26 Chemin du Quai at Pointe-Basse wharf in front of the Smoke Herring House. Also, why don't you take the time to discover more on mariculture from the production to your plate by visiting our interpretation center? And by the way, wear the rubber boots and come with us on the boat to visit the farm offshore or in the lagoon and discover how those delicious shellfish are growth.
