Whisky and I
How many times have I visited Scotland, the motherland of whisky…
How many times have I daydreamed in front of those gorgeous copper stills…
How many times have I returned to Schiavon, the motherland of Grappa…
How many times have I wondered if I would be able to make a good whisky.
Schiavon and the Secretary of State
15th October 2013, what an extraordinary day for us people of Schiavon, a little village in the heart of Veneto: our most illustrious fellow citizen has been nominated Secretary of State of the Holy See.
“Such an event deserves to be celebrated with a special distillate!” says the Mayor Mirella Cogo.
The whisky Segretario di Stato
After deep thoughts, my siblings and I decided to throw the heart beyond Hadrian’s Wall and to produce a whiskey in his honor!
We worked hard, we studied, we chose the most suitable barley, we modified our bain-marie pot-still, we made trials and attempts, conducted numerous tastings and especially waited for long years to realize a product unique in its kind: a pure malt whisky aged in Amarone barrels.
An international spirit, with a Venetian soul, as we see him, our Segretario di Stato.
Alla Sua salute!
