Italian spirit at Distillerie Poli

The Poli family has been making grappa – one of Northern Italy’s most beloved hard liquors – since 1898. The Polis obviously know, and have learned to love, all the rules and secrets that lead to excellence.

Their artisan enterprise is based in Schiavon, near the capital of the typical Italian pomace liquor, Bassano del Grappa. It has four tireless discontinuous cycle stills – two operating on steam heat and two based on bain-marie heating – in which the freshest pomace, from the best winemakers in Bassano del Grappa and the nearby hills of Marostica and Breganze, turns into grappa.

Schiavon is also home to the Poli Grappa Museum: 1,000 square meters divided on two floors, including a Library of 1,300 historical books on the art of distillation, and a Grappateca – that is, a collection of approximately 2,000 types of grappa made between the 1930s and the 1980s in 400 different distilleries, many of which have now disappeared.

A place vibrant with… Italian spirit!
