NV Ratafia, Evangelista

Italy
(12x50cl)

History

Evangelista Liquori is a family business, founded in 1907 in Borrello (Chieti), a small mountain village in Abruzzo. During the long, cold winters Mayor Antonio Evangelista, who had a passion for alchemy, used to prepare a ‘special drink’ heated over an open fire which gave off a scent so intense and intoxicating it aroused the town. Curiosity and demand grew, eventually spreading across the entire country. Evangelista’s signature brand ‘Punch Abruzzo’ is the original recipe handed down through the family. Even now his legacy endures in the distillery which continues to produce a wide range of exceptional liqueurs.

Production

Ratafia is a traditional Italian liqueur usually made using fruits or nuts steeped in a sweetened spirit, but recipes vary by region, even by village! In other countries Ratafia is more likely to be a mistelle, mixing marc brandy with the unfermented juice of the grape. Evangelista Ratafia brings together the charming fusion of three year old Montepulciano d’Abruzzo D.O.C. wine and local black cherries. This creates a rich, full-bodied liqueur that is blended with almonds and fruit spices; a beautifully handcrafted product with true Italian heritage.

Tasting note

A rich, spicy traditional Italian liqueur made by blending 3 year old Montepulciano d’Abruzzo D.O.C.
