Père Magloire's calvados
Since 1821, Père Magloire’s calvados reflect our goal of producing high-quality Calvados and Calvados Pays d’Auge apple brandies with a subtle balance between authencity and refinement.
AND STILL SUCCESSFUL
THE GENUINE CALVADOS
Located in the heart of the Pays d’Auge region, in Normandy, Père Magloire is one of the oldest maison of Calvados and Père Magloire’s calvados are part of Normandy’s heritage and of the national legacy. Père Magloire is a testament to this French state of mind, blend of spontaneity, authenticity and elegance, set against the background of the Normandy countryside and homely French villages shaped by the centuries. The history of Père Magloire, impersonated by a generous and charismatic Norman innkeeper, starts the same year as the death of Napoléon, in 1821. The search for higher quality and the respect of tradition rapidly make its name famous in Paris during the 1920’s, where his face can be seen on many posters. Since then, eight generations of cellar masters have succeeded each other, perpetuating through centuries the unique style of Père Magloire’s calvados.

THE RULE OF 25
“My job is to watch over the consistency of our products daily. Similarly to how the saying goes about apple trees – twenty-five years to grow, twenty-five years to produce, twenty-five years to die- I am myself a link of a temporal chain made of tradition and expertise.”
Jean-Luc Fossey, Maître de chai
