“Pòta! Che grappa ”, the first grappa made in Bergamo
Pòta! Che grappa comes from the distillation of pomace produced and vinified by a winery in the province of Bergamo, mainly Merlot e Cabernet. It is distilled in Mapello by Locatelli Fabrizio Distillery, the only one left in the province of Bergamo and the largest in Lombardy.
The idea of launching a typical Bergamasco product on the market was born from the company Le Distillerie di Sarnico®, a company located in Sarnico on Lake Iseo, which has been producing liqueurs, grappas and spirits for over 40 years, and which has followed all the phases of realization of the Pòta! What grappa: first of all the name, which derives from a typical Bergamo expression, the packaging (image of the upper town profile), bottling and distribution.
