NARDINI MARKS TIME WITH THE NEW GRAPPA HANDBOOK - LAUNCHING IN SCOTLAND ON THE 9TH SEPTEMBER 2019.
As part of its 240th anniversary celebrations, the Nardini distillery has published a fresh edition of The Grappa Handbook to promote Italy’s national spirit. It has been printed simultaneously in English and Italian.
Authored by grappa evangelist Nick Hopewell-Smith, the new book sets out to help F&B professionals and interested consumers alike to gain a better appreciation of grappa as a high quality distillate. It not only explores the drink’s heritage and the production techniques involved, but showcases 45 cocktails from some of the world’s best-known mixologists, amongst them Ueno Hidetsugo; Leonardo Leuci; Sullivan Doh and Ago Perrone. It also reprises three classic recipes from legendary grappa aficionado, Dale DeGroff. Produced some 11 years after the first edition, which was co-authored by Nick and spirits entrepreneur Marcin Miller, the new book features all-new tasting notes from award-winning drinks writer, David Broom, including his take on the new Selezione Bortolo Nardini range.
