Rare, limited Husk Spirit

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.
Only 529 bottles exist, each one individually numbered and carefully packaged by hand in its special edition wooden case, making it a true collector’s item. R1259. Reserve your bottle at de-toren.com
