Luigi Francoli | Italy image

The Francoli family has been distilling grappa in Piemonte, Italy since the 19th century. Company president Alessandro Francoli has inherited a passion for grappa and has spent a lifetime developing and perfecting a portfolio of outstanding quality and distinction.

The district of Piemonte is well known for the excellence of its wines and the high quality raw material necessary for the distillation of fine grappa is abundantly available. Piedmont is often described as the ‘Burgundy’ of Italy, a reputation due to its many small-scale, family wineries and a focus on quality that sometimes borders on obsession. The only carbon neutral Grappa distillery in the world. All the energy required by the plant’s production process is obtained from burning the dried vinaccia. To be considered ‘Zero Impact’ Fratelli Francoli purchased custody and commissioned the planting of 196,000m2 of Costa Rican rain forest to compensate for the emissions.
