A liqueur obtained from the infusion of camomile blossoms in grappa made from fresh and carefully selected Piemontese Nebbiolo grapes.
Paolo Marolo is widely regarded as one of the best Grappa producers in the world. He is credited for being a leading innovator in Alba, the heartland of Grappa production, for departing from the tradition of working with a continuous still (used for efficiency in mass production), and choosing instead to work with a bain-marie discontinuous still.
This alembic requires fresh pomaces and distills very small quantities much more slowly, but ultimately captures the yields a Grappa that is infinitely more pure, complex, and invigorating, with many dimensions of aromas and flavor. Moscato Grappas are generally more well-received by the average drinker due to their lifted aromatics and softer palate.
This enchanting “liqueur” is made from grappa that has been infused with chamomile for 11 months. With a distinctly pretty nose of chamomile and citrus peel, there is nothing else like this; it makes a wonderfully calming digestif or creative cocktail ingredient.
