Réserve Ancestrale

Réserve Ancestrale concludes beautifully the ageing cycle of Calvados Groult. Aged and blended in the casks that belonged to Pierre Groult (1830-1918), this exceptional blend of the oldest eaux-de-vie of the domain will surprise you with its softness, subtlety, spices and notes of "tarte tatin".

The annual production is intentionally limited to maintain the root of very old Calvados in this blend.

Le Figaro Magazine (December 2014) :
"What's in this bottle is incomparable: the oldest spirits of the property blended with dazzling mastery. On the nose and palate, an almost perfect balance between power and elegance, pure charm and fascinating complexity."

About us

Company details


A family passion since 1860 … 

The history of our family distillery 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. 

From left to right : Pierre Groult, Leon Groult and Roger Groult

A few decades later, in 1860, Pierre Groult (1830-1918) decided to distill his cider and to age the eau-de-vie produced 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.

His son Leon (1874-1923) developed the production and sales of Calvados at regional level.

Thanks to Leon's son, Roger Groult (1905-1988), the distillery had its biggest boom. He 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. Our bottles are now present in the cellars and famous restaurants in over 30 countries.

Finally, the traditions are perpetuated because today his son Jean-Roger, the fifth generation, perpetuates the double distillation over a wood fire and other traditional methods, and is pleased to offer you these great Calvados Pays d'Auge.
