RAPA GIOVANNI RATAFIA DI ANDORNO JUNIPER LIQUEUR
The distillery was founded in 1880 by Giovanni Rapa. It is located in the Valle Cervo, in Andorno Micca in the province of Biella, and that has always been its home. Giovanni Rapa was an eclectic man. A sculptor cabinet-maker, in 1865 he went to Milan to attend the Academy of Brera. From there he moved to the Don Bosco in Turin and later to Lyon, always practicing the art of sculpture.
Since the beginning of the 18th century in Piedmont, it has been customary to infuse juniper berries into alcohol to preserve their floral and digestive properties. Ratafia di Andorno Juniper Liqueur has a distinct herbal quality reminiscent of genepy and Green Chartreuse, playing nicely with gin, tequila and most spirits for that matter!
