The season has started off well for Maison BOULARD: Calvados XO won the «Double GOLD medal» at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, with a special mention for «Best Brandy». They also won a gold medal for their Calvados VSOP.
Richard PREVEL – Cellar master at Calvados Boulard:
«The Calvados XO is THE calvados, for beginners and connoisseurs alike. It is easy-to-drink, round, mellow, with a long-lasting finish. The aromas of tarte tatin, cooked apples and honey give it a sweet taste which melts in the mouth. A double gold medal, along with the title of Best Brandy: a brilliant and well-earned award for Calvados XO!»
