Have you ever heard of Singani? We’re guessing you haven’t. But Singani is the national beverage of Bolivia and it’s been made exclusively from the distilled juice of Muscat d’Alexandria grapes grown at al altitude of over a mile since approximately 1530 — nearly 500 years. It’s fermented using natural yeasts and distilled by a local farm to bottle producer of Singani in Bolivia called Casa Real. And although Soderbergh resists the classification, Singani 63 is officially an un-aged Brandy or Eau d’Vie with a very distinctive flavor profile.
The famous director Steven Soderbergh is the first to bring this Spirit to market outside for Bolivia. He continues his personal quest to have Singani recognized as a unique Spirit category unto itself.
