Presentation

The history of Maison Lecompte begins in 1923
when a local wine and spirit merchant
decided to sell the rest of his company
but hold onto his collection of vintage Calvados.
He then devoted himself entirely to the aging,
blending and promotion of Calvados.
Maison Lecompte was born.
Conveniently surrounded by orchards

producing the finest apple varieties in Normandy,
Maison Lecompte is based on a small farm
in the heart of the Pays d’Auge.
The distillery now houses some 800 oak casks,
with an extraordinary array of vintage
Calvados Pays d’Auge maturing peacefully
in its eight cellars.
These small oak barrels contribute the woody
aromas and hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
which are so integral to the charm
of Maison Lecompte’s Calvados.

Lecompte is one of the oldest and
most traditional Calvados houses, nestled snugly
Maisons de Calvados. amid the rolling green valleys which surround
Notre Dame de Courson, a picturesque village
that remains one of Normandy’s best-kept secrets.
