2012 has got off to an excellent start for Père Magloire, with yet more awards for our Calvados. These awards are symbols of recognition from experts and professionals in the field of fine spirits, saluting the superior quality of Père Magloire Calvados and further confirming our leading position in the luxury market.
The first major event of the year was the General Agricultural Contest in Paris, held February 25th – 28th, which yielded our first silverware of 2012. Our Calvados Père Magloire 15 Years picked up gold, with silver medals awarded to the Calvados Père Magloire 20 Years and the Hors d’Age.
Next stop New York for the Ultimate Beverage Challenge, held March 5th-9th in the luxurious surroundings of the Astor Center. Père Magloire Calvados achieved coveted ‘Finalist’ status, with the 20 Years rated ‘Extraordinary’ and the XO and VSOP both earning the ‘Excellent’ designation.
Père Magloire was of course well-represented at the 12th edition of the San Francisco World Spirit Competition, held March 22nd-25th at Hotel Nikko and widely recognised as the most prestigious of the American competitions.
Calvados Père Magloire XO was honoured with a Gold medal, with Calvados Père Magloire VSOP taking Silver!
