Ciao! Bonjour! Hello! Yellow! Gold!

As you now already know, we are always in search for a perfect dram. It's like the gold rush, we are running from place to place, we are digging, sniffing, sipping, licking… only this time the gold is in liquid form. 

A long journey awaits us this month. We'll start in Italy, move to France, then Scotland, Kentucky and finish it in Guyana. We know some excellent drams are waiting for us, but only Tasting Is Believing. Whoohoo! And that’s exciting! 

When we started putting together this August edition, the working title of the pack was The Flavour Rollercoaster. The idea behind it was to show you the range of flavours you can experience sipping brown spirits. But then, while selecting the drinks, another layer revealed itself – small but interesting stories of the people behind the brands and products. 

So, what do we cover in this month’s edition? Two grape based spirits, two grain based spirits and one sugar cane spirit – all top of the range. We also have some special guest appearances – a straw hat maker, a cognac dealer from a noble family, opium smuggler (omg!), American president and a group of sugar cane producers. Whoohoo! And that’s exciting again! 

This will be a really nice but extravagant trip and the route we've chosen is also the most appropriate 'flavour-wise’.

1) Grappa is grape-based pomace brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (“the leftovers” of winemaking), no added water is allowed.

2) Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

3) Bourbon set of rules refer to manufacturing method rather than location. It must be matured in new and charred casks of American white oak. No colouring or flavouring of any type is allowed. It must be matured for at least 2 years, if a bottle does not bear an age it is at least 4 years old. The mash bill must contain at least 51% corn. 

4) Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

5) Rum is made by distilling fermented sugar and water. Sugar comes from the sugar cane and is fermented from molasses, cane juice, or cane syrup. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels. 

This is it, check out the drink details featured in this tasting pack and don’t forget to organize a tasting.

Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to grappa makers; this is a measure that was taken against moonshine operations. They say it works. Sfortunatamente.
