Nonino Grappa Vendemmia Riserva Aged 18 months
Nonino Grappa, considered probably the best Grappa house in the world, comes from Udine in northern Italy. Nonino only makes grappa and owns a total of five distilleries. The house invented the single grape grappa in 1984, and in 2010 their Merlot was named the New York Ultimate Spirit Challenge, not only named the world's best Grappa, but the best product in the category of best Grappa, Brandy and Eau de Vie. Paul Pacult, America's leading spirits writer, ranks Nonino Grappa as one of the world's three best spirits products among all categories. If you google the word grappa, you will be able to read that it is a kind of brandy made on the kvass of the grapes, distilled on column kettles and subsequently blended from different grape varieties. This is also true in almost all cases - just not with Grappa Nonino. Grappa Nonino is the only grappa producer that distills exclusively on potstills. As many as 68 of these - 12 pot stills for each of the original family members (father, mother and three daughters) and one pot still for each of the eight grandchildren. In addition to this, Nonino is the only producer that distills on the whole grape, and at the same time also the company that invented the process of distilling on the individual grape. The latest generation actively participating in Nonino Grappa's leadership are the three Nonino sisters, Antonella, Cristina and Elisabetta. As daughters of Giannola (President of Nonino and Honorary Doctor of Udine University) and Benito (Masterblender), they all hold three prominent positions in the family company Nonino. In line with virtually all the leading spirits producers, they are part of an old family business (1897), whose primary desire is not to make money, but to make the best product imaginable. Just like Glenfarclas Whiskey, Drouin Calvados, Chase Vodka and Gin as well as Tesseron and Daniel Bouju Cognac and Laubade Armagnac, which we also have the honor and pleasure of working with.
