The special secret of Tosolini distilled spirits will never be revealed to anyone outside of the members of the family. The ancient art acquired by Master Distiller Bepi Tosolini continues to live on in the professional commitment that is displayed by the entire family, from Giovanni, who now heads the company, to his grandchildren Giuseppe, Bruno and Lisa.
The Tosolini family are committed to preserving and refining the knowledge that their grandfather Bepi acquired from the master distillers of the territory of Friuli. This philosophy has resulted in a continual search for improved product quality and purity, while maintaining the intuition and mastery displayed by Bepi Tosolini also resulted in some innovations in the production of distillates. Defined by a famous journalist from the specialised press as the “patriarch of the still”, Bepi arranged for some special steam stills featuring manual controls to be built, which are still used by the company today. In fact, the steam still does not “burn” the marc or the grapes, but instead delicately transports the alcoholic vapours to the top of the device, allowing a pure and aromatic distillate to be obtained.
This rather fabulous espresso coffee liqueur is made with traditionally-toasted Arabica coffee beans.
Aromas of heavily roasted coffee beans and high percentage cocoa dominate the nose. The palate is initially sweet but dark espresso and bitter chocolate quickly appear to give balance and richness. Espresso once again lingers on the finish with hints of mocha and vanilla.
