Calvados Roger Groult
The history of the family distillery began in the eighteenth century when the family Roger Groult moved to a beautiful farm in the hills of the Pays d'Auge, in Saint-Cyr du Ronceray.
A few decades later, in 1860, it was Pierre Groult (1830-1918) who decided to distill cider in oak barrels: Calvados Roger Groult was born.
Through his hard work, his production, not to mention the beautiful region, the Calvados Roger Groult quickly obtained a good reputation. He won his first gold medal in 1893.
His son Leon (1874-1923) developed the production and sale of Calvados at regional level.
It is the son of Leon, Roger Groult (1905-1988), wich gave the distillery its greatest development. He increased the production capacity of the relatively small distillery and made it one of the most famous in France.
Jean-Pierre, the son of Roger (1946-2008), developed and expanded the distribution of its products in France and was a pioneer in conducting Calvados at global level.
Finally, the traditions are maintained, because today is his son Jean-Roger, the fifth generation,who maintains the double distillation on wood methode together with other traditional methods.
