Grappa is a unique Italian drink. It’s traditionally made from pomace, discarded grape seeds, stalks and stems that are a by-product of the winemaking process. This liqueur has been around since the Middle Ages, but the history of Grappa has deeper roots. From the ancient Egyptians to Mediterranean alchemists, all the way to our tables, Grappa is not only the perfect, elegant conclusion to a good Italian meal. But it’s also a symbol of the magic and mystery that, for centuries, has been associated with the making of spirits in Europe.
For a couple of hundreds years, acquavite kept its ambiguous status of medicament and drink.
A pivotal moment in the history of Grappa comes in the 17th century, when the first Corporazione degli Acquavitieri is created in Venice. This shows production had become consistent enough to call for an association regulating it, especially in the North East of the country, the area where, still today, Grappa is most largely produced. If you’ve never tried Grappa, you’re in for a treat. It’s a fiery, but tasty beverage. Perfect to warm up during winter or to finish a delicious meal…
