The Producer: In 1860 Pierre Groult began distill his family's cider and age it in barrels. Five generations later, Pierre's great-great-grandson is still at the helm.
The Why:Jean-Roger Groult is one of the finest distillers in Calvados. His domaine, “Clos de la Hurvanière” is a beautiful farm located in the hills of the Pays d'Auge, in St Cyr du Ronceray. It is family owned for eight generations and focused on the sole production of Calvados for five generations, using the best quality cider mostly from their own orchards. Pale colour with a pronounced apple aroma, this young Calvados is appreciated for its great freshness. Works well in cocktails - try it with some Tonic for a refreshing drink.
