Powerful and voluptuous, this topaz-hued beauty features warm vanilla, cinnamon and concentrated fruit. Full bodied and weighty on the tongue, the long, spicy finish may remind some of mulled apple cider;except this is the real deal. Made with a blend of Calvados aged from 8-40 years.
Boulard Calvados is the first name in super-premium Calvados, the celebrated apple-based spirit unique to the Normandy region of France. Founded in the late 1820s by Pierre-August Boulard, Boulard is today headed by Managing Director Vincent Boulard, representing the fifth generation of his family to oversee this historic family business.
Boulard's time-honored reputation begins in the firm's 150 acres of orchards and 35,000 apple trees in the Pays d'Auge district, the officially designated source of the finest apples in Normandy. Over 120 varieties of apple, from 800 varieties grown in Boulard's orchards, are selected for production of Boulard Calvados (over twice the number of varieties stipulated by the governing body regulating Calvados production).
Calvados Boulard XO is obtained from blending several Calvados varieties from the Pays d'Auge aged between 8 and 15 years.
