Roger Groult

It was the eighteenth century when the Groult family settled in the Clos de la Hurvanière, a beautiful farm located on the heights of the Pays d'Auge, in Saint-Cyr du Ronceray. A few decades later, in 1860, Pierre Groult (1830-1918) decided to distill his cider and to age the brandy obtained in oak barrels. Thanks to his methods of production and a magnificent terroir, his Calvados quickly obtained a good reputation, winning his first gold medal in 1893. However, it was two generations later when Roger Groult (1905-1988) was in charge that the distillery had its greatest growth and became one of the most famous in France. Latterly his son, Jean-Pierre (1946-2008), further developed the distribution of his products and became a pioneer in exporting his calvados worldwide. Roger Groult is still one of the most respected calvados producers in France.
