Produced from a blend of Calvados varieties from the Pays d'Auge of which the age varies from 2 to 5 years, the Calvados Boulard Grand Solage is characterised by its apple fragrance and its amber colour. A smooth and fruity Calvados with an incomparable elegance and aromatic richness.
Originally from Scotland, I moved to Oslo from London, where I worked in bars and in sales.
I started working at The Bristol Bar on the 15th of November 2012.
I love using Calvados. Its a spirit that often gets overlooked by cocktail bartenders, however, I think it is a lot more accessible than traditional wine based Brandies.
I use Boulard as it ensures exceptional quality and the Grand Solage displays exactly the right balance of flavours I wanted with its apple freshness and vanilla richness.
