Maison SASSY (www.maison-sassy.com) makes distinguished ciders from 100% pure apple and pear juice. Handmade in Normandy, based on a historic family recipe, the modern French cider brand is bottled with both design and flavour in mind. Proving to be a winning recipe, Maison SASSY has gained fans amongst the world’s most lauded chefs, including Alain Ducasse, Jason Atherton and the late Joel Robuchon. The brand’s modern design aesthetic, natural production methods and elegant glass bottles set them apart, and this gifting season sees Maison SASSY partner with acclaimed artist and illustrator Quentin Monge to release their 2019 Gift Box (RRP £28), launching exclusively with Selfridges (online and in store).

The Gift Box will contain three 33cl bottles of Maison SASSY’s range of ciders, which have been eye-catchingly dressed in Quentin’s signature graphic style. Quentin grew up in the South of France, where even as a young boy he started doodling and sketching in the sand; a childhood spent on the coast inspires the colours and designs of his work today.

Having lived in Paris in recent years, he has now returned to the South of France to soak up more inspiration, reflected in the warm colours and botanical shapes adorning Maison SASSY’s exclusive new box.

Quentin Monge is rapidly becoming a rising star in the world of digital illustration. His colourful, curve-centric and minimalist work has already found fans in brands such as Airbnb, Kiehl’s and even Apple. A true experience-seeker, Quentin explores and develops his universe through paint, collage and pattern creation.

Maison SASSY is the new, modern face of traditional Normandy cider.

Founded by Xavier d’Audiffret Pasquier and Pierre-Emmanuel Racine-Jourdren at Xavier’s family home – the grand Château de Sassy in Normandy – they have preserved the tradition of cider and calvados making since 1852, thanks to Xavier’s family and their love for the terroir. Uniquely, Maison SASSY blends around twenty different apple or pear varieties in the ciders, which gives the products very complex aromas, easily comparable to that of grapes.

The production process is derived from an extraction of the fruit and is free from additives, colouring, sugar and concentrates, even water, ensuring a natural and fresh drink, made from 100% fruit juice. From the carefully selected varieties of apples and pears, to the bottling, everything is 100% locally-sourced. The cider is gluten free, and because of the natural ingredients, it is also low calorie (from 38kcal per 100ml), it’s 30% less calorific than beer and 50% less so than wine.

Maison SASSY has two low ABV products, with SASSY Poiré coming in at 2.5% and the SASSY Cidre Rosé at 3% ABV. Expect a well-balanced drink:

Despite some Normans drinking it at breakfast, Maison SASSY is especially enjoyed as an apéritif; it also pairs beautifully with cheeses and desserts. Find the gift box on shelf at Selfridges (London, Manchester and Birmingham) and online via their webshop and Maison SASSY’S own website.


With 10 different ciders to choose from, including flavours such as refreshing Cider with Raspberry, Cider with Elderflower and the 200 Special Edition, they are sure to get you in the summer spirit at home! 

Each flavour cider comes in a case of 12 but there is also a ‘Mixed Apple Cider’ and ‘Mixed Fruit Cider’ option available which means you have a variety of ciders to enjoy rather than a single flavour, the cases star from £29.55 and vary depending on which flavour you go for.

Under the watchful eye of David Sheppy, their sixth generation Master of Cider, they continue to champion the same traditional methods, using rare crafting skills to produce the Sheppy’s range of award-winning, premium craft ciders.
