Tasting Notes

This masterful eau de vie is crafted by one of the world's great artisans, Vittorio Capovilla. One of the most seductively aromatic beverages we have ever encountered Capovilla laboriously sources the best fruit in Italy including the prized Pellecchiella variety grown on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius near Naples as well as the Reale variety from Emilia-Romagna and smaller quantities from Alto Adige. Opening with gorgeous pure fruit notes bursting with ripeness, after a few minutes the spirit opens up to notes of sweet herbs, currants, green pears, quince, white pepper and mineral. Distilled in custom made bain-marie copper pot stills from the 2011 harvest and rested for years before being drawn to proof with local spring water and bottled without additives.

Staff Pick Notes

There are some products in the store that scream with craft and absolutely deserve your attention. This is one of them. Vittorio Capovilla is one of the world's great distillers. Known for his exceptional grappas and single cask rhum agricole (an Astor exclusive), he has once again shown his skills with this aromatic, stunning single cask Apricot Eau de Vie, which you will only find here. The nose is a heavenly, intoxicating mix of dried apricots, orange blossom and savory notes. The palate evolved several times showing fruit, spice, and herbs, but the real treat lies in the texture, which is like a wispy cotton candy which coats your mouth without being overbearing. Stunning.
