Grappa

This traditional Italian spirit is made from crushed grape skins and is served after a meal (as a ‘digestivo’) to aid digestion. Italians also imbibe it as a ‘caffé corretto’, which is grappa added to an espresso coffee. Generally grappa is a clear liquid, but lately aged grappa is gaining in popularity. The name ‘grappa’ is not reserved for the drink distilled in Italy, and local producers also create grappa for you to drink and savour.
