National Calvados Week has just come to a close and what a success this first edition has been. No fewer than sixty or so bars and restaurants in England and Scotland took part in this event organised by Emporia Brands* in partnership with Père Magloire Calvados. Some famous places such as :
- le Coq d’Argent
- The Royal Exchange
- Bread Street kitchen Gordon Ramsey restaurant
- The Lost Angel
- Bond N°9 Edinburg….
The operation provided an opportunity to get to know Calvados through cocktails, serving suggestions and delicious menus concocted with Calvados.
Calvados-themed promotions and activities were also organised by wine merchants and wholesalers in the course of the week.
In the light of the enthusiasm shown by consumers for the finest of Normandy’s eaux-de-vie, the second edition is already being scheduled for next year, with October earmarked for another National Calvados Week with Père Magloire Calvados!
