Did you know grappa is made from the skins, seeds and stems left over from winemaking? It is also in demand as a digestif – in Italy, people like to sip it and relax after a rich meal as it is an aromatic, neutral spirit that aids in digestion. Drink it straight, use it in cocktails, or alongside an espresso – choice is yours! Keep the correct glass handy – it should be tall and narrow with a wider opening at the top so the aromas can be fully enjoyed. Make sure you store these bottles upright and out of sunlight and heat, particularly those with cork stoppers so the spirits don’t attack the cork.
