The Best Grappa and the Alembic


Distillers in Piemonte and Trentino believe the bain-marie still is the best, while those in Friuli and Veneto prefer the steam cauldron still.

Here at the Poli Distillery we use both.

Every alembic has particular qualities that makes it suitable to distil a specific prime material.

In order to produce Grappa it is necessary to know the system featuresand the prime material’s quality but especially it is necessary to have clear ideas as to what distillate style we want to obtain.

At the Poli Distillery, two “bain-marie” stills are in operation - the traditional one and the vacuum one - and the ancient copper still with steam pots.
