Notes: Rue is a plant that grows on poor soil or in wine regions. It is well known for its digestive and diuretic characteristics and is usually harvested before its flowering time. It is then left to infuse for about 30 days in fresh grappa and finally bottled with a fresh rue branch. Our rue grappa is characterised by a smooth, soft and slightly herbaceous taste.
The Dwarf pine grows in the Dolomites on an altitude of 1200 - 2700 m and is well known and appreciated because of its soothing and digestive characteristics. The fresh pine cones are collected between May and June and afterwards put into cold, fresh grappa for about 45 days. Our Dwarf pine grappa is further characterised by its intense flavour and - thanks to the pine cones - also by the traditional woody fragrance.
Juniper usually grows on an altitude of 1000m. It's berries are appreciated for their diuretic, digestive and soothing properties. The fresh and ripe juniper berries are lightly crushed before left to infuse cold in fresh grappa for about 45 days. Afterwards the grappa is bottled with a juniper branch. Our juniper grappa is characterised by a very strong and persistent taste.
Made with an ancient recipe, kept strictly secret. Many different kinds of herbs are manufactured and mixed together. It is the mix of all these herbs' properties that assures the stimulating effect of this bitter. It is not a slightly bitter liqueur, but a proper bitter with a full and dry taste, genuine and without any added sugar. The ancient monastery recipe rightly called it " The long life elixir".
