Rapa Giovanni Ratafia di Andorno Walnut Liqueur
One of the classic liqueurs of Andorno, this is a perfect infusion of walnuts, alcohol, sugar and spices. Green walnuts still in their husks are collected on the night of June 24th, the “Day of Enchantment.” The resulting spirit is packed with the warm, classic flavors or Piedmont. Perfect for sipping and mixing.
The distillery was founded in 1880 by Giovanni Rapa. It is located in the Valle Cervo, in Andorno Micca in the province of Biella, and that has always been its home. Giovanni Rapa was an eclectic man. A sculptor cabinet-maker, in 1865 he went to Milan to attend the Academy of Brera. From there he moved to the Don Bosco in Turin and later to Lyon, always practicing the art of sculpture.
