I was looking for a little photographic inspiration and someone on Twitter suggested grappa. After some reflection, I thought that’s not a bad I idea, so out came the camera and the bottle of Casa Luparia Gan Riserva Grappa did not go back into the drinks cabinet after lunch.
How could I create and image of grappa, I wondered. It’s Italian, so how about using an Italian flag as a backdrop? After some messing around with the grappa and the flag, I ended up with this photograph which I quite liked. See what you think.
Here’s the grappa photo:
By the way, this is not a bad grappa at all – it’s as drinkable as it is photogenic. Casa Luparia Gan Riserva Grappa is aged in oak casks for 24 months and the result is what Italians might call a grappa morbida – no, that’s not a morbid grappa, whatever that may be! Morbida in Italian means ‘soft’. It might be hard to comprehend how a drink can be soft, but if you try some run of the mill industrial grappas and then some of this, you’ll probably understand. This is no firewater. Quite the opposite. In fact, it goes down a little too well bearing in mind it says 42% on the label. After three post lunch shots, I decided it was time to stop before I ended up going over the top.
Will you be able to find this interesting grappa outside of Italy? You might find it lurking on the web somewhere but you probably won’t find it to easily in the UK or the US. A shame. Italy needs to publicize its grappas more, I feel.
If you sell this grappa internationally at a reasonable price, let me know and I’ll add a link to your online store or offline shop so others can try it.
