2020 has been fully satisfactory so far, also thanks to these two certificates of excellence.
GrapeHeart is made by 13 selected botanicals from the hills of Valpolicella, flavoured with the iconic Amarone wine.
To collect the hilly scent and incorporate the aromas of wine we let tiny droplets settle on the botanicals before infusing them in wheat alcohol. We employed an ultrasound sonicator to obtain a cold vaporization of wine.
GrapeHeart is the perfect paring to your favourite meal and, why not, one of the ingredients.
Grapeheart & Tonic
Take your first sip, rinse your mouth for a little while and enjoy the wave of sensations... We advocate first tasting Grapeheart neat. For a perfect G&T, use a neutral tonic water (like Fever Tree Indian, Fentimans Indian, Goldberg, Aqua Monaco, Thomas Henry). We really recommend to avoid pungent garnishes such as fresh lemon skin, rosemary or cucumber.
- 40ml Grapeheart Gin
- 100ml Tonic Water
Garnish: Dried lemon or orange, raspberries or juniper berries
Technique: Stir directly into the glass first gin, then big ice cubes, finally tonic water
Service: Tumbler, but why not a Wine Glass?
GrapeHeart Old Fashioned
This innovative version of the timeless Old Fashioned comes from the genius of Fabio Fara, who decided to amplify the bitter scents of GrapeHeart by employing different bitters. The sugar syrup softens the drink, while the absinthe provides the right freshness. [visit Fabio IG profile]

Cuor di Gin
The next generation of Peach Ice Cream. The creamy and sweet white flesh variety "Michelin" has been mixed with Grapheart Gin. The collaboration with Sapor di Gelato resulted in this tribute to wine and peach, iconic products of Valpolicella. Here garnished with thyme and juniper berries, try it also with Dark Chocolate Flakes. [visit the fb page of Sapor di Gelato]

While Martini e Manhattan got their way in the majority of drink lists, Bijou lost the appeal it had in the late XIX. That's a pity! In the original recipe from the Harry Johnson's Bartenders' Manual (1900) Gin, Chartreuse e Vermouth are mixed in equal parts. We simply prefer it with more Gin.

- 20ml Green Chartreuse
- 20ml Sweet Vemouth

Garnish: Black Olive or Cherry
Technique: Stir & Strain
Service: Coupè o Martini Glass
