Our Story

After several years spent working in France & in foreign countries, Valéry Desfrieches, son & grandson of Calvados makers, decides to come back to his homeland, Le Pays d’Auge, to build his own factory in 1992, near the apple trees.

Fascinated by large formats & attached to his country’s forests, he soon decides to specialize himself in the making of casks & tanks made of french oak.

Valéry Desfrieches & his team produce more or less 30 made-to- measure pieces a year using traditional methods.

Valéry Desfrieches welcomes new trainees each year to transmit his know-how & keep the profession alive.
