Made by infusing chamomile blossoms in Nebbiolo grappa. Its calming qualities also aid digestion. A delectable digestivo created from a traditional recipe of the Langhe region.
|Marolo’s meticulously hand-crafted Grappa & Camomile is a liqueur obtained from the infusion of camomile blossoms in grappa
made from fresh and carefully selected Piemontese Nebbiolo grapes. The camomile flowers are picked when fully mature, dried in
the shade, left to steep for 11 months in the grappa which is then filtered. A time-honored product of the Langhe hills -- the land of
Barolo and Barbaresco - is transported to a new realm of elegance.
|1977, Paolo Marolo's first grappas were produced from the desire to transform a traditional,
often rustic product into an example of the distiller's art. Since that time he has consistently
worked with the pomaces of noble grape varieties from the renowned wine regions of Italy.
Marolo's Santa Teresa distillery works closely with wineries in various regions to ensure that
only the freshest pomace is used. Two small discontinuous "bain marie" stills are employed,
one for white wine pomace and the other for the red wine pomace. This method of production
means that Santa Teresa cannot distill large quantities of spirits, but it allows Marolo to
capture the diverse and well-defined characteristics of the excellent raw materials he uses.
