In 2017, the Calvados Nouvelle Vogue International Trophies celebrate their 21st edition, Monday 10th of april, in Granville, Normandy.
Professional bartenders and students in bartending from 14 countries are inviting to put their creativity to the test. 14 different nationalities, 14 various cultural backgrounds and 14 lifestyles, will have to imagine, mix and craft the next best cocktails, based on one specific spirit, Calvados... and around one single topic, inspired by Normandy of course !
This year’s topic? The sea, the seaside
Inspired from the French poet Charles Baudelaire’s «Free man, you will always cherish the sea!», the IDAC is asking the candidates «Free barman... which sea do you cherish?».
Their Calvados-based cocktail will have to reflect what the sea means to them.
