Real bitter notes from the botanicals are complemented exquisitely by the scents of fresh mint leaves. On the palate it is rich and balanced, developing from bitter citrus peel notes into sweet and savoury mint and aniseed on the finish.

Carefully selected botanicals and vegetal extractions are macerated for long periods in the base spirit. Length of time varies for each botanical. Then, the addition of Piedmontese mint gives this fernet its characteristic scent. All natural flavours and colourings.

Founded in the late 1800’s, four generations of the Quaglia family have guided the business through more than a century of artisan production, modernising it where needed whilst cherishing the older, traditional methods of distilling. The distillery was established just after the Unification of Italy in 1871 between Monferrato and the hills towards Turin.

It was Giuseppe Quaglia, the knight, who first purchased the property and in 1906 built a well for water supply and an industrial-sized boiler to produce vapour. His son Carlo, took over the distillery in 1930 adopting and adapting the familial distilling secrets. His main aim was to improve the efficiency of the bottling department and in so doing, he increased the production capacity substantially. The third generation of Distilleria Quaglia (another Giuseppe), began to complement the ‘forward-thinking’ approach of his ancestors with a more traditional stance and methodology; in 1967 he started to produce particularly refined and highly-prized single-variety grappe but insisted they continue using the original stills from 60 years earlier. The great-grandson of the original Giuseppe (another Carlo!) is the most recent to take over the business. His enthusiasm for the exquisite quality of Quaglia products, is evident in his move to enrich the choice of rare, unique creations without ever overlooking the Distillery’s core values of artisanal excellence and the use of high-quality, natural primary products. These beautiful liqueurs and grappas have such purity of flavour, with a perfect balance of intensity and delicacy.
