Nardini grappas are named for the Italian Nardini family who claim to have been making grappa (a spirit distilled specifically from wine grape skin and pits or pomace) from its founding in 1779 by Bortolo Nardini. They use both a traditional pot still and column still in their distillations from two different locations, presumably blending prodcut from each for a consistent product. Nardini Tagliatella is a grappa-based liqueur that is an aperitif using flavors of cherry. It is mean to strike a balance between bitter and sweet. They suggest serving with a ginger beer.
