Hors d'Age Calvados Morin availability in the Bay Area?

  • 6

recently paid a visit to Drink in Boston's South End and had the good fortune to enjoy a perfectly crafted Golden Dawn cocktail, prepared with Hors d'Age Calvados Morin, a 15 year-old bottle of brandy bliss. Wondered if anyone might perchance know if this fine spirit is available in the Bay Area?

Will likely pay a visit to Ledger's in Berkeley next weekend....

  1. From googled wine searcher for bay area.
    Nothing found for that search, but our best guess nearest store is:
    XO-Vin
    23 Route d'Aubengue, Wimereux 62930, Nord-Pas-de-Calais
    (5430 miles from you) Change your location

    1. I'm not sure, but wine-searcher.com finds it only at one shop in Waltham, MA.

      1. The site for this store states they have it in stock; not sure about the vintage. San Francisco Wine Trading Co. • 250 Taraval St. (at Funston) San Francisco, 94116 • Phone: 415.731.6222 • Toll Free: 800.681.WINE

          If they don't, give Weimax in Burlingame a call, they have some hard-to-find stuff.

            thanks, that is Michel Huard Hors d'Age (extra aged) , a different distiller than the Morin. Perhaps a very fine aged calvados, just not the one I'm after

          2. cheers folks! this one is worth tracking down
            I did see the hit at the shop in Waltham, but won't be back in the Boston area for a maybe a year. If you find yourself there, pay a visit to Drink, definitely a unique cocktail experience
