he history of Grappa Libarna is deeply characterized by the territory in which it all originated: Piedmont, land of quality spirits, made from its famous and precious vines.
Born from the centuries-old experience of the Gambarotta Distillery, founded in 1832, Grappa Libarna takes its name from the Roman settlement of the same name in Serravalle Scrivia, from which the shape of the historic bottle that recalls the capitals of Roman columns takes its inspiration.
Today Grappa Libarna renews the tradition with a range of spirits that celebrate the vocation of the territory and the craftsmanship of distillation in copper stills.
The history of Grappa Libarna is deeply characterised by the territory in which it all originated: Piedmont, a land of quality spirits, made from its prestigious and famous wine varieties.
Born from the centuries-old experience of the Gambarotta Distillery, founded in 1832, Grappa Libarna takes its name from the Roman settlement of the same name in Serravalle Scrivia, from which the shape of its historic bottle draws inspiration, recalling the capitals of Roman columns.
Today, Grappa Libarna renews the tradition with a range of spirits that celebrate the vocation of the territory and artisanal distillation in copper stills.
The very fresh pomace is distilled in a current of steam, according to an absolutely artisanal method, in discontinuous cycle copper pot stills, under the careful watch of the Master Distiller.
Subsequently the alcoholic vapours, produced by the heating of the marc, are cooled and brought to a liquid state.
In this way, three parts are obtained:
the heads, which must be discarded because otherwise they would give a pungent scent to the grappa;
the heart, that is, the most highly prized part, the true essence
of our product;
the tails, which must be cut because
they are rich in substances which
would make the distillate
oily. The result is a grappa
with a lively scent and a
particularly sweet and clean taste.
According to the ancient tradition, the best fresh pomace of Moscato grapes alone is steam-distilled in copper stills. The resulting distillate is then aged in French oak barriques for a period of at least 12 months, to create a highly elegant and rounded grappa.

The pomace of Nebbiolo grapes, which stem from the Langhe of Barolo, is distilled in a current of steam in copper stills in a discontinuous cycle, according to an ancient artisanal method, under the careful watch of the Master Distiller.
