Grappa Italiana, Caffo

The history of the Caffo family business dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, when Master Distiller Giuseppe Caffo began distilling. His sons founded what has become Grupo Caffo, distilling a small range of spirits from grape (i.e. grappa). The Caffo brothers soon began producing and earning recognition for their fruit and herbal liqueurs and classic Italian spirits. Today, their approach remains driven by ingredients and agriculture, and Grupo Caffo operates estate farms in Calabria and Sicily, solely to supply their spirit productions.

Tasting Notes

Caffo also has a distillery in Friuli where the grappe is made.  This Grappa is comprised of 95% magliocco and gaglioppo, with 5% pinot grigio brought in for good measure.  Distilled twice on an alembic still, Caffo’s grappa is way less fiery than many would expect from the norm, especially for the price.  Enjoy on its own or mixed into cocktails needing that dried fruit and herbal touch.
