IMPORTS

There’s a little great revolution nowadays in Italy, as regards the production of premium spirits and liqueurs. The richness of botanicals and other raw materials, and the passion and fancy typical of the Italian character, linked to one of the strongest tradition in producing liqueurs and spirits, and moreover one of the most important heritage in the hospitality business, have all made it.
We now are witnessing the Renaissance of many lost liqueurs, the birth of a new high-profiled production of spirits, and the experimental development of new creations, which go beyond the previous makes. It’s an honor and a great experience to bring something of all this to the UK market and to tell about it.

OPIFICIO NUNQUAM

Born around 20 years ago, from Fabio and Cristina’s passion for food and tradition, as a typical Tuscan “osteria”, in the country nearby Carmignano, it’s been transformed when Fabio, thanks you his childhood memories about his grandfather producing home-made vermouth, has been researching the real history of the traditional vermouth made in Tuscany. Actually, the “Vermouth Bianco di Prato” recipe has been written in the first part of the 18th century, but brings out a tradition that refers to the Florentine Renaissance era. Tradition inherited from the classic Greek culture and even older Etruscan practices.
Nowadays Nunquam, a family runned business, produces more than 20 different liqueurs, using the best and local raw material, the best alcohol (often organic) and the traditional production methods (simply infusion, filtration, and time..) to make some of the finest products made in Tuscany. Between them we have the reproduction of the 1750 recipe of the Vermouth Bianco di Prato, but also Alkermes and Fioretto di Firenze, two of the 5 liqueurs produced in Florence in the Medici Family time, and some fines amaros and afterdinner liqueurs like Herbarum and Tifeo. And moreover, two special Bitter liqueurs to be used in classic or modern cocktails.

DI-WINE


Another story from Tuscany, comes from a Chianti wine producer, located exactly between Florence and Siena provinces. From an old grandfather recipe made as an afterdinner liqueur, Gabriele has reproduced a traditional but modern new liqueur.
Based on his Chianti wine, with mainly Sangiovese grapes, the wine is fortified with alcohol and added in maceration with Orange and Lemon peels, and Vanilla barks.
It’s not a vermouth, as there are no gentian or absinth in, it’s not a real fortified wine (like porto), as it is infused with botanicals and not aged, it’s not a mulled wine, as there are no cinnamon, gloves, or other spicy botanicals.
It’s Di-Wine.
Versatile for classic cocktails like Negroni or Americano (but even Spritz!), excellent as an afterdinner liqueur, paired with desserts or even cheese.

It started in this way a travel, searching always new flavors and experimenting new combinations, eventually with the help of some of the most famous bartenders in the world, that has brought Claudio, to be one of the most well-known artisian, in the production of alcoholic essences.

Lastly, Farmily Vodka, back to the distillery origins, a product sometimes mistreated but sCll in the heart of our clients. Our vodka has a characterisc that makes it recognizable in its market.
