Tasting Through France Episode 1: Calvados with BCI



In collaboration with BCI importers, on April 30th we launched our first of a special lunchtime series dedicated to the art of spirits and French savoir-faire. 

Guest speaker Pierre Martin Neuhaus, third generation proprietor, spoke about the production, from orchard- including the importance of bee pollination and a surprisingly long four-month long harvest, to cask. The VSOP has been a family recipe since 1971, developed and raised to perfection by Pierre's grandfather before being entrusted to the current generation. Pierre Martin was joined by spirits specialist Francois Morisson who did a live mixing of calvados with a fruity twist and shared his tips for the perfect stay at home cocktail. 

To sample and enjoy Calvados for yourself, order Coqueral Fine Calvados online with delivery to your door from Wine.com (NY, CA and FL) or Drizly (Houston, Seattle, Tampa, St. Paul, Minneapolis).
