Père Magloire is part of French national heritage. The firm is the oldest and best known of all Calvados producers. It is located in Pont-l’Evêque in Normandy, in the heart of the Pays d’Auge, right new to some of the most famous tourist spots in France. In fact, Maison Père Magloire and its renowned cellars attract some 25,000 visitors a year.
The history of Père Magloire, personified by a generous and genial inn-keeper from Normandy, began in 1821, the year Napoleon died. Père Magloire was one of the first French trademarks to be officially registered. The high standards of quality combined with its respect for tradition soon made the brand famous throughout Paris.
Since then, 8 generations of Cellar Masters in succession have created their Calvados from more than 100 varieties of apple.
Each year, some 100 vintages, produced from single or double distillation in copper stills, are blended in Père Magloire’s ancestral cellars and then laid to age in barrels crafted from centennial oak trees.
In the more than 50 countries where it is enjoyed, Père Magloire Calvados is seen as a promise of a memorable moment to share. And that promise always kept.
