Great news in the Nonino family of spirits and among Italian spirits.
Nonino GingerSpirit is the distillate obtained from maceration and distillation 100% with the artisanal method of only ginger of Italian origin.

But how was Nonino Gingerspirit born?
Ginger is fermented in purity in an anaerobic environment in stainless steel vats, the fermentation time is a well-kept secret by Cristina Nonino.
It is subsequently distilled in artisanal stills with discontinuous distillation.
100% distillation with artisanal method with the cutting of heads and tails, in particular exclusive discontinuous steam stills renewed by Benito Nonino for the distillation of particular raw materials such as fruit and ginger.
The distillation takes place very slowly to allow the volatile components, responsible for the aromas, a correct evaporation and consequent condensation while keeping intact the precious organoleptic characteristics.
The ginger distillate subsequently rests from six months to a year in stainless steel containers.
Production is limited, strictly dependent on the area and the vintage harvest and the difficulties of distillation.
The exclusive bottle engraved "diamond grindstone", in satin velvet effect glass of 500 ml is beautiful.
