Antica Distilleria Quaglia – Jerry Thomas Project Bitter del Professore NV

25% abv

With the Bitter Del Professore, the aim was to recreate the rich and complex 19th century flavours that have since been lost to industrialisation. The altitude in Piedmont, the hard dry soils, the long hot days and cold nights are tough on the local herbs, fruits and flowers but it also means that they get the best concentration of aromas. The Bitter Del Professore is made by infusing alcohol with herbs and spices, all ingredients are infused separately and then blended to taste to create the perfect flavour. They treat each of their ingredients with great care – infusing the bitter orange peels from Calabria as soon as they arrive at the distillery, brushing clean the wild gentian rather than washing it with water, extracting the pink core of the small sweet rhubarb from the Lanzo and Soana valleys to name just a few examples.
Tasting notes

This wonderful infusion translates into a unique liquor, ruby red in colour. It offers pleasant and complex notes of cascarilla, juniper and pepper with fresh scents of orange and bergamot.

Serving suggestion: 5cl Bitter, chilled soda to taste, serve in a small collins glass without ice, garnish with orange and lemon zest.

Founded in the late 1800’s, four generations of the Quaglia family have guided the business through more than a century of artisan production, modernising it where needed whilst cherishing the older, traditional methods of distilling. The distillery was established just after the Unification of Italy in 1871 between Monferrato and the hills towards Turin.
