>Distillerie Roger Groult

Since the middle of the 19th century, Distillerie Roger Groult has been firmly rooted in the history and terroir of the Pays d'Auge. Founded in 1860 at the "Clos de la Hurvanière", it embodies the perfect fusion of Norman tradition and constant innovation, offering Calvados of exceptional quality.

Each generation of the Groult family has added its own unique touch. Pierre Groult, by distilling his cider, laid the first stone of this edifice. The recognition of his eaux-de-vie, highlighted by his first Gold Medal in 1893, paved the way for a legacy of mastery and excellence.

Léon's innovations, such as the planting of new orchards and the introduction of additional stills, solidified the distillery's reputation. Despite the trials of time, notably the First World War, the dedication to producing the finest Calvados never wavered.

With the rise of Roger Groult after the Second World War, the distillery underwent a remarkable expansion. His initiative in enlarging the distillery and building a major ageing cellar helped position Groult Calvados on the international stage.

Jean-Pierre Groult, with his forward-looking vision, expanded worldwide distribution while retaining the artisanal essence of Calvados. His efforts to plant new orchards and increase stocks ensured that growing international demand was met without compromising quality.

Today, under the management of Estelle, Charlotte and Jean-Roger, the distillery successfully combines ancestral production methods with modern approaches. Whether it's wood-fired double distillation, perpetual blending or the introduction of original cuvées, each Calvados reflects the rich tapestry of the Groult family's history, terroir and unrivalled expertise.
