The Heroes’ Cellar

Le cantine sotterranee delle Poli Distillerie

The oldest underground cellar
in the distillery is named
"The Heroes’ Cellar" in honour
of those employees who over
the time contributed to let the
distillery grow, giving their heart.

Today it shelters
4.000 barriques
for the natural
maturation of grape
and wine brandies.

The barrel’s small size, from 225
to 500 liter, allows an intense
exchange between the wood
and the distillate, that gains
a golden colour and develops
smooth and complex flavours.

Every year, about 3% of the spirit
evaporates; this part is commonly
known as “the angels’ share”,
but we prefer to define it
"the Heroes’ share".
