Product of: Italy
Domus Grappa is distilled from 100% Ruché DOCG grape pomace, a rare red varietal grown in the hills of the seven villages around Castagnole Monferrato, Piedmont in north-west Italy.
This limited edition (500 bottles), artisanal grappa is the first of a premium brand created by Massimiliano Favaretto, Bar Manager at London’s El Nivel. Domus means home, which Massimiliano says "it so it's because the smell of grappa reminds of my home when I was a kid back in Italy."
The label was designed by Agnieszka Szypicyn, Massimiliano's girlfriend and founder of inesdesignes.com.
