Monday March 26, the Centre de Congrès of Caen welcomed almost a hundred professional and student bartenders who travelled from 14 countries to compete in the 2018 Calvados Nouvelle Vogue International Trophies. The candidates had to create Calvados-based cocktails around the cool and trendy theme of vegetables.
Using at least one vegetable was mandatory as well as meeting the challenge of the brief: « Pick, mix, blend... A souvenir, a desire, an imagination... Delve into your imagination and tell us what is your cocktail made of! »
The most coveted prizes, professionnal bartender and student bartender trophies were won by Poland which showed this year again its increasing interest for Calvados and its mastery of Calvados-based cocktails.
