What Port is to Portugal, Cava to Spain, and Champagne to France, so now too is Grappa to Italy.
This is thanks to a relatively recent change in terminology. If it’s made elsewhere in the world, then the spirit which is distilled from grape skins that have been removed during the wine-making process, is referred to as Husk Spirit. The ‘husks’ or skins find new life in a clear, refined spirit that is anchored in wine production but takes flight in delicious new directions.
Like the virgin release of De Toren Private Cellar ultra-premium De Toren Fusion V Premium Husk Spirit. This rare and limited edition is an ideal digestif, meal accompaniment, or enjoy it the traditional Italian way as a Caffè corretto, which is an espresso shot ‘corrected’ with a small amount of grappa. Be sure to drink at the correct temperature – 14 ºC to 16ºC – and in the optimal grappa stemware – a tulip-shaped or cognac glass. You should also let it breathe for 10 to 15 minutes.
