Mountain spirits and traditional recipes
This liquor making business has been passed down from father to son. For decades, expert wild plant gatherers have been producing natural distillates through cold infusion, following ancient recipes. The most representative products are Elixir Noreas and Genepy. These bottles hide the secrets of the different gathering areas and seasons, as well as maceration and distillation techniques. These are very natural liquors and Giovanni and Matteo are very proud of them.
The visit to their workshop is conducted by Matteo and makes you appreciate the craftsmanship needed in this business. In some times of the year, you will also observe and smell the macerating herbs. On some other occasions, you will see the plants from which the distillates are produced.
The shop welcomes you up with several sampling opportunities, from bitters to sweet liquors, including famous Bombardino which evokes frigid, snowy winter days and the need for a sweet, fragrant glass of a friendly liquor.
