The Calvados

Calvados Boulard V.S.O.P. is a Calvados from Pays d’Auge. It is issued of blending of different Calvados Pays d’Auge from 4 to 10 years old. They will stay in the casks for the necessary time to obtain a perfect dissolve. A well balanced harmony between vanilla, wood and ripe apples.

“An happy hour drink ! ”



I have been a bartender in Philadelphia since 1994, working at a variety of establishments including Rock Bars, Dive Bars, and Cocktail Bars.
I have been developing the beverage program and bartending at Farmicia for the past 6 years.

My cocktails have a classic, artisanal style, using my own house-made vermouth, grenadine, bitters, and syrups (among other things).  I am a big fan of the old style, without the pretention.
I used Apple jack in cocktails and has success with it, and Boulard Calvados is a step up from that. I love the bouquet and taste of Boulard VSOP.
