Avallen Calvados, the world’s most planet-positive spirit, has been awarded two prestigious awards at this year’s World Calvados Awards. The bee-friendly Calvados brand has been judged the Best Speciality Calvados in the World and the World’s Best Calvados Design – a testament to their brand partners, Wonderworks Communications. The brand also picked up Gold awards for their label design and launch.
Avallen’s liquid is fresh, fruity and proudly apple forward in its flavour profile. A Calvados AOC aged in French oak barrels for two years and bottled at 40% ABV with no additives or added sugar, caramel or boisé, it is simply made from over 40 varieties of apples, water and time.
Avallen Spirits is a company with planet positivity at its core. The labels are made from recycled apple pulp (the rest of the pulp is distributed to dairy farmers to feed their herds), using only vegetal dies minimising the impact on the environment. The bottle is one of the lightest on the market, sourced from a glass manufacturer near the Normandy Distillery where Avallen is produced to help reduce the carbon footprint.
Founders Tim Etherington-Judge and Stephanie Jordan, said:
“We are honoured to have won these prestigious awards on the global stage – recognising both our mission to create a brand that has a positive impact on the natural environment, combined with the creation of the best of flavours and tastes in this competitive market.”
Miranda Hart, Creative Strategy Director and co-founder of specialist drinks marketing agency, Wonderworks Communications, added:
“Steph and Tim came to us with their ambition to launch a category disruptor, with a mission to be the most sustainable spirit in the world. Our role has been to harness their driving brand purpose and idea for the liquid and bring this to life for global consumers. We’re absolutely delighted to be recognised with this award.”
The World Calvados Awards are the global awards selecting the very best in all the international recognised styles, promoting the World’s best calvados to consumers and trade across the globe.
