Ever since the start of its activity, the distillery’s production included Grappa and liqueurs.
There were just a few grappas: the young one, the aged one and Rue Grappa.
The liqueurs, on the other hand, were at least thirty.
Among these stood out a liqueur obtained from the infusion of plums in food-grade alcohol, called “Slivowitz di prugne”.
GioBatta Poli entrusted the task of designing the label to a teacher of drawing at the Art School of Nove, a town close to Schiavon and famous for its production of hand painted artistic ceramics.
A strange character was thus born, a faun, a pagan deity protecting woods and crops, who made his appearance on the label with a mischievous smile.
In the Thirties the Italianization, that cultural-political operation that aimed at replacing all foreign words with Italian ones, reached also the small town of Schiavon.
