This is a must-visit destination in Bassano, where tradition and innovation blend harmoniously to create the finest spirits.
Upon entering the old distillery, you’ll be transported back in time among old marble floors, a large wooden counter, alembics and shelves full of neatly lined bottles to breathe the history, passion and tradition behind the very place where it all began. Guided through different rooms with breathtaking views of the bridge and surrounding panorama, you’ll learn about the fascinating history of Nardini, its deep connection to Bassano and all the secrets that hide behind this cherished Italian spirit. You will learn how Nardini played a crucial role in the distillery process, as for the first time in history it was no longer the distiller with a mobile still going to the farmers, but the winegrowers themselves bringing in the pomace for the production of grappa right here in Bassano.
After the insightful visit, it’s time for the moment you’ve been waiting for – the tasting. Begin with the flagship Grappa Bianca, a smooth and refined delight that embodies the time-honored tradition that has made Nardini an esteemed name in the world of grappa.
Next, savor the Grappa Riserva 3 Years, a well-matured spirit boasting an aromatic bouquet and velvety texture. Each sip is a celebration of craftsmanship and expertise, a testament to Nardini’s commitment to perfection.
Following on you will be tasting the Amaro. Let the botanical notes of orange, gentian root and mint dance on your palate, leaving a lingering freshness of mint and liquorice.
Experience the surprising nuances of the Tagliatella, a unique liqueur characterised by floral fragrances and subtle hints of spices. Grappa, sour cherry, orange and herbs are the key ingredients in this precious recipe guarded by the Nardini family.
Finally, delight in the refreshing finale of the Acqua di Cedro. Intense, crystalline, and clean, this liquor brings out all the freshness of the citron fruit, with its intense citrusy aroma. A clean, regenerating flavour like a gentle summer breeze, leaving you with a bright and invigorating aftertaste.
Throughout the tasting, a knowledgeable expert will be your guide, sharing captivating stories and insights into the world of Nardini’s renowned spirits.
