Olivier Rœllinger's words
In the old days, the men who sailed the South Seas took cider rather than water. In the tropics, they celebrated their arrival with a drink made of cider – at least, what was left of it – rum and spices. Upon their return to Brittany and Normandy, they celebrated again, drinking this grog like a hyphen in the heart to shrink the Atlantic and forget their suffering.
