“This grappa-based liqueur is a special gift from the Nardini family. It’s the glass we raise to life’s moments: the start of a challenge, a celebration...It was created in the 18th century, when there was extensive poverty and people couldn’t afford to buy grappa. The Nardini distillery was a well-known place to go for a drink. In those days, the products were kept in large copper containers, each of which had a leaking spout. There was a little pan under each copper to collect the extra drops. At the end of the day, the pans were put into a big barrel with the left-over grappa, named Tagliatella - literally, ‘a cut of everything’ - which was offered to the poor. This is why I love it - it’s the working man’s cocktail...”
A traditional liqueur, fruity and pleasantly bitter-sweet, Tagliatella is the perfect drink for any time of the day.

JK.14 I Tre Fratelli Prosecco Treviso Extra dry, Valdobbiadene, Italy
Attractive bouquet of white fleshed fruits and citrus laced with green and red apple; a white beer yeasty quality adds a familiar tone. On the palate – fruity, crisp, fresh and most certainly dry. A fine mousse and moderate finish. Balanced and well made – a nice alternative to your usual tipple. Drink now.
