In 1844 Normandin was established by Edouard Normandin in Chateauneuf-sur-Charente. Just a few scraps of information have survived. Around 1880 a distillery was built for Normandin on the Chemin des Quais la Mothe, now known as just Chemin des Quais.
The distillery was re-build in 1920 but demolished again in a later stage. It became a production place for caramel and Eau boisée for Martell. Nearby, on the Chemin de la Grande Prairie there was another distillery of Normandin, build around 1892. This distillery was sold to Distillerie du Comptoir des Charentes in 1952 and is acquired by Jubert Distillerie in 1982.
Normandin was known for its use of traditional methods and high-quality products and was widely distributed both in France and in many countries overseas.
In 1976 they became part of Gemaco, which integrated already with the Berger group. Today Gemaco/Berger is part of the Belvédère group. Normandin is still being produced, but only in modest quantities.
