Grappa is uniquely Italian drink and this 'Grappa di Prosecco' is one of the flagships of the Alexander range. It is the result of a delicate distillation in steam stills, followed by an ageing period of a few months in stainless steel barrels. It is characterized by the incomparable fresh fruit and golden apple aroma anticipating a soft, round and harmonious impact on the palate.
Most commonly sipped as a digestif after meals, Grappa is also great in cocktails and long drinks. It is also traditionally used in espresso coffee to make a 'caffè corretto' - an espresso coffee with a few drops of grappa. In the Veneto and Friuli regions of Italy the locals will use it to dilute the last drops of coffee remaining on the bottom of the cup. This is called 'resentin' which roughly translates as 'little rinser' which is exactly what it is. If you want to try one, take an espresso with a little sugar, drink it down, then pour a few drops (or more if you are cheating) of grappa into the cup, swirl it around to rinse out the last of the coffee, and swallow. Cin cin!
In the 1920s, Domenico Bottega was a wine trader. He was a passionate oenologist and was able to recognise the best grapes when still on the vine. Distilleria Bottega had already been producing producing fine grappa for three-generations but it wasn't until 1987 though that the trademark Alexander was created. The new Alexander brand was introduced to bring the fine Grappa and spirits of Distilleria Bottega to an increasingly educated and refined consumer base. The company has gone from strength to strength since its inception and today the brand is well know throughout the world.
