Grappa Museum Italy

Up until the end of the 19th century, Grappa had a peasant or even rustic identity. Considered to be exclusively a male drink, it continued through the first half of the 20th century retaining is nature as a strong and corroborant beverage. 

The early 1960ís saw the appearance of the first industrial continuous stills in some distilleries. These are distillation systems able to work continuously, non-stop, thus obtaining a very high production of distillate at low cost. Artisan-type Grappa distilleries suffered a big blow from a commercial standpoint, given the highly competitive price of industrial Grappa: if there were nearly 2.000 artisan producers of Grappa at the beginning of the 20th century, today there are only about 90.
