Share of 2.500F - Cenon-Bordeaux 1952
The company was founded in 1910 by the Dussaut family, owners of Château Lamothe, and Marcel Bussière, mayor of Cenon from 1915 to 1925, on the site of a former abbey of the monks of La Merci founded in 1218, grounds of Château-Gauvin, 36 rue Emile Zola.
The head office was located in Cenon-Bordeaux (Gironde), Château Gauvin and the General Management, in Paris, at 99, rue Saint-Lazare.
In the 20th century, the La Vieille Cure distillery produced a local golden yellow liqueur made up of 52 aromatic plants and called "La Chaleureuse". In 1909, it received the name of "Vieille Cure", from the name of the property which bordered the church of Saint-Romain de Cenon.
The bottle found on several titles of the company has a particular shape, a fake wax seal and Gothic characters.
Prosperous as evidenced by the numerous capital increases and share issues, the company employed up to 130 people. The capital was initially 825,000F, increased in 1912 to 1,750,000F, increased in 1920 to 6 million, in 1924 to 10 million, in 1927 to 18 million. It was then reduced to 5,700,000F in 1936 by cancellation of repurchased shares and finally increased to 8 million in 1942. 1000 founder shares were created.
The distillery site has been abandoned since the end of the 2000s. A project to transform the place into a "food factory" is underway on the land bought in 2020 by the City of Cenon.The company was bought by the Dutch group Bolls in 1962, then it was the Inter-Marques company (liqueurs, cognac, armagnac) which moved into the factory until 1987. The AD company set up in its tower but ceased its activities in 2009.
