In 1789, when the turmoil of the French Revolution was sparking in Europe, the Reverend Elijah Craig named his whiskey Bourbon for the first time in America. The magic of bourbon refinement is based on the indispensable and refined contribution of wood essences: In this barrel-aged whiskey, in addition to the intensification of the color into a dark amber tone, which the wood achieves, more complex olfactory and aromatic sensations also mature. Just as bourbon whiskey is the symbol of American distillation, Piedmont is internationally associated with a name that has written the winemaking history of the Langhe hills: Barolo.

  • Basis: From the marc of Nebbiolo grapes, which come from the area of the mountain town of the same name near Alba, one of the symbolic distillates of the Unesco area of the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato wine regions is obtained: Grappa di Barolo.
  • Manufacturing: This distillate is matured in oak barrels for 18 months and thus takes on the properties of color and aromas typical of a Riserva, with spicy, roasted, and dried fruit notes being emphasized. At this point, the Grappa di Barolo meets the sensory charm of American bourbon whiskey with the aim of creating a unique and surprising combination: A Piedmontese dry grappa is poured into barrels that were previously used to age bourbon whiskey. The Grappa di Barolo is now continuing its refinement and acquiring exceptional notes that can strengthen the unmistakable personality of this 100% Piedmontese distillate in a unique and inimitable way.
  • Sensory characteristics: Fine notes of dried fruits and spices on the nose. Balanced on the palate, particularly soft and spicy. All in all, a symbolic bridge between the USA and the Italian wine-growing region of Piedmont.
  • Alcohol content: 43 % Vol.
  • Optimum serving temperature: Between 15 and 18°C.
