Edition 17
Made-in-Italy distillates are a booming market.

In the Cavaniglia Pavilion, visitors can enjoy these precious distillates and their aromas paired with sweet flavors in an ideal escape. An exciting selection of companies, some with a century-old tradition and others newly conceived, all dedicated to cultivating and researching the best botanicals and the care of the processing. The result is small productions, expressions of the terroir, that deliver the intensity of the passion they were born from in the glass.

For three generations, the same recipe, based on aromatic and medicinal herbs, spices, and fruit peels, composes an amaro carrying the value of tradition. The company's offer also includes grappas and original liqueurs.

Amaro Erbes 
For 120 years, the Izzi Liquor Factory has been extracting an infusion with extraordinary tonic and digestive properties from medicinal herbs. Quinine, rhubarb, gentian, and chamomile, suitably combined with other plant varieties, are the elements of Amaro Erbes. Semi-dry, it is drunk neat, in water, coffee, or seltz. It is unbeatable for cocktails, very appreciated as punch, and refreshing with ice.

Amaro Rubino Bio

Made with local honey and botanicals typically grown or cultivated in the land between the Lombardy and Piedmont lakes and pre-Alps, with ingredients from organic and biodynamic agriculture. 

Argintario
A gin that carries in its name and content the beauty of the Argentario promontory. A corner of Tuscan Maremma, surrounded by the sea and represented by typical botanicals like juniper, mastic, sea fennel, and lemon balm.

Dibaldo Spirits
The Unbitter and BBB, Vermouth 721, and Gin Paracelso are fragrances and Eau de colognes "to wear" in the philosophy of perfumer Baldo Baldinini. In his spirits, the essences' intensity persists in purity and mixing.

Deta
In the hills of Chianti Classico, a distillery has been producing spirits since 1926. The grappas are obtained from the best pomaces: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and other red berry varieties. The Antico Amaro delle Terme is aged in barrels, and the Gin Giusto is obtained from Chianti juniper berries.

Essentiae del Salento/Amaro di ulivo
A liqueur born from the cold infusion of olive leaves and fresh peels of bitter oranges and Salento lemons, which are organic and harvested at the time of ripening. Following an ancient Apulian recipe, this combination gives the product excellent digestive properties.

Gin Fulmine
Bold, electric, rock and roll: the vermouth Vandalo, the gin Fulmine, the amaro Grinta, the bitter Spinto declare, already by the name, indicate the desire to leave a mark. Also thanks to the labels where the vintage style becomes edgy.               

Granamaro
Conceived in the summer of 2020 by brothers Marco and Alessandro Riggi, third-generation Sicilian millers and owners of the eponymous mill, Granamaro is the first amaro made from wheat in history. A precious distillate enriched with citrus notes of bitter oranges and orange blossom and bittering notes of wormwood, gentian, and rhubarb.

Mirto Sannai
A farm in harmony with the surrounding nature, overlooking the Gulf of Marinella. The myrtle berry liqueur is accompanied by myrtle and honey liqueur, and white myrtle amaro.

Nannoni
From a careful selection of sometimes rare or small-quantity raw materials, and artisanal and attentive distillation, exclusive products such as "Riserva," aged in 225-liter barrels, are paired with fine chocolate, dried fruit, or small pastries and a luxurious ingredient for signature cocktails.

Peter in Florence   
A London Dry Gin made in Tuscany thanks to the use of the first carterhead still in Italy, faithfully reproduced following the original 1831 design. Fourteen botanicals, with particular emphasis on Iris, symbol of the city.

Risorgimento 5 liquoreria artigianale
In the ancient Mill of Zoppola, on Risorgimento Street 5, grain is distilled with juniper berries and botanicals, passito wine with leaves and aromas, an infusion of herbs, and a macerate of officinal herbs. The result: gin, vermouth, bitter, and digestif marked by labels that recall ancient spice shops.

Spiriti del Bosco Volterra
A collection of precious spirits and liqueurs derived from the soul of the Berignone nature reserve in the Alta Val di Cecina, where already in 1860 there was a distillery in the forest. In addition to Gin, Vermouth, and Bitter, the flagship is “Albatro,” an alcoholic nectar, a conversational rosolio, from strawberry tree fruits.

Ulibbo
This liqueur of olive and carob leaves comes from a project by Verso le Origini, an agricultural company in Ragusa, heir to the long history of Sicilian amaro and distillates. The list of ingredients, found on a yellowed sheet of hand-written paper, has handed down to this day the ancient flavor of this liqueur with a decisive character. 

Vermouth Agricolo delle colline di Firenze
From organic Chardonnay grapes, the brand-new “Bouquet!” is born. Golden yellow, with pleasant aromas of orange peel, flowers, quince apple, lemon cream, sage, and broom, it is the agricultural vermouth of the Florence hills, produced by the Fattoria Lavacchio Bio-Winery.
