  • Alexander Grappa di Prosecco

    1 Review(s)
    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! Learn More
  • Grappa Sandro Bottega Morbida

    The flavour of grappa, like that of wine, depends in part on the type of the grapes used. In Bottega's Grappa Morbida the marcs (the solid remains of grapes, after pressing for juice) are obtained from Pinot and Glera, two varieties widespread in the Veneto region. After discontinuous steam-distillation inside stills, it is left ageing and improving over a few months in stainless steel containers.

    Morbida translates as soft or more accurately mellow and this grappa is aromatic, smooth and with less of the burning sensation than others.

    Grappa can help digestion, so it's perfect after meals. It can be drunk cold or even chilled, used as ingredient for cocktails and long drinks and is a great accompaniment to dark chocolate. The Italians will have a caffè corretto (a few drops of grappa in an espresso coffee) and, in Veneto and Friuli, they will dilute the last drops of coffee on the bottom of the cup which is called resentin translating as 'little rinser'.
