Le Pere Jules Poiré

By I Think About Beer @ithinkaboutbeer

Le Pere Jules PoiréJules Desfrièches returned to Normandy in 1919 after serving France during WWI where he’d earned the nickname “Père” Jules. Raised by his grandparents how loved Normandy, Jules learned to make cider on his grandparents’ farm using the trees that are virtually omnipresent throughout northern France. Once Jules returned, he began producing cider and selling it locally. In 1923, he started distilling Calvados. 30 years after its founding, Jules’ son Léon joined the firm and changed the name of the branding to Le Père Jules in honor of his father. Jules’ grandson Thierry joined the family business in 1976 and began exporting their products in 1980. Guilluame, the 4th generation, now armed with a oenology degree, joined the business in 2002.
