Le Père Jules is a fourth-generation family producer of pear and apple ciders, pommeau, and Calvados in Normandy. The history begins in 1919, just after the First World War, when Jules Desfrièches (aka 'Père' Jules or 'Father' Jules) began producing cider using the apples from his family's farm. Soon, demand for his ciders spread from the local restaurants and became very popular throughout Normandy. In 1949, son Léon Desfrièches joined the business and created the brand 'Le Pére Jules' after his father. Today, the Desfrièche family remains committed to the standards of quality set by 'Le Père', and so it is no surprise their handcrafted ciders and Calvados are so coveted in gourmet circles around the world. From Le Père Jules: "Our 'Poiré', or Pear Cider, is produced from three varieties of pears that come from multi-centennial orchards. It is known for its fresh and refined taste. As with the cider, our Poiré is lightly filtered and bottled to develop its fine natural gas. It is excellent to drink with any sea food. All of our products are made from apple and pear varieties that are carefully selected from traditional orchards of tall trees in a protected area of controlled production (AOC)."
