About Boulard X.O. Calvados Pays d'Auge
Produced by the Boulard family in the town of Coquainvilliers in French Normandy since setting up the operation in 1825, Calvados Boulard began as a cider and calvados distillery. Founded by Pierre-Auguste Boulard who was one of the pioneers of the calvados category, the distillery and its distribution expanded considerably during the 20th century, reaching Europe and Africa in the 30s and the USA, Canada, and Scandinavia in 1947. The Boulard family backed an initiative in 1942 that would lead to the creation of the AOC ― Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (Controlled Designation of Origin) ― Calvados Pays d'Auge.
Boulard XO Calvados Pays d'Auge represents the culmination of all the aromas present in their range of calvados. A blend of many Pays d'Auge crus, it's crafted with spirits aged from 6 to 15 years in oak casks. With notes of fresh apple, vanilla, spice, and nutty touches, it's a deliciously fruity yet rich and complex spirit that's bottled at 80 proof.
