The history of Calvados Groult started in the eighteenth century when the family Groult settled in the “Clos de la Hurvanière”, a beautiful farm located in the hills of the Pays d'Auge, in St Cyr du Ronceray.  

Pierre Groult (1830-1918) begins to distill his first cider around 1860 and to age it in oak barrels: Calvados Groult was born.  Through his hard work, its production methods and a beautiful terroir, its Calvados quickly obtained a good reputation. He won his first gold medal in 1893.

Roger Groult (1905-1988) increased the size of its distillery and made ​​it one of the most famous in France. His son Jean-Pierre (1946-2008)developed further distribution of its products in France and was one of the pioneers in exporting its Calvados worldwide.

Today, Jean-Roger Groult, the fifth generation, perpetuates the tradition of double distillation over wood to offer one of the most amazing range of Calvados Pays d'Auge you can find on the market.
