About Le Pere Jules

Le Père Jules is located in Pays d’Auge, the heart of the Normandy region.

In 1919, having just returned from WWI, Jules Desfrièches, nicknamed “Le Père Jules,” decided to turn his passion for apples and his region into a craft. As an orphan, he was raised by his grandparents who taught him how to make cider, which he would sell to his neighborhood, and increasingly, to the local restaurants. In 1923, he distilled his first Calvados. Since 1919, quality, discipline, respect for tradition and love of their craft have guided four generations of producers. All of their products are made from carefully selected apple and pear varieties. They follow organic principles and produce an average of 100,000 bottles of cider a year.
