BECCARIS DISTILLERY, BOGLIETTO DI COSTIGLIOLE D'ASTI
Distilleria Beccaris was founded almost by chance, because in 1951 its founder Elio Beccaris had decided to set up in business, but was unsure whether he should build a distillery, a winery or a vinegar production plant, so he asked his son Carlo, then just a few months old, to make the choice. He put three pieces of paper with the possible options in a hat and asked the little boy to pull out one of them, swearing to abide by his decision.
So Carlo Beccaris can quite rightly claim the merit for the rare, fundamental features of a highly respected company, including craftsmanship and passion, which create outstanding quality.
The distillery is best known, without a doubt, for its Moscato grappa, its best-seller, which is aged for at least three years.
As well as this "Riserva" quality, it also makes the "Stravecchia", offered for sale after ageing for 10 years in Slavonian oak casts, and produced from a fine blend of Nebbiolo, Moscato and Barbera aquavits. Moscato grappa is now also offered for sale in the two splendid "Vis Aurea" and "Stilla di Sole" bottles, aged for ten years.
The philosophy of Distilleria Beccaris is simple: to use the right things to make a good grappa, and the right things are provided by Mother Nature, in the form of pomace. This is where skill and experience come into play. These qualities, combined with human sensitivity, are the secret of the success of people from different generations, who have all shared the same passion.
