Grappa Nardini for the Queen Mother, please!
Grappa is the distillate that is much loved in Italy but also appreciated abroad.
In fact, the Queen Mother appreciated the noble unique and pure spirit such as Grappa Nardini, so much so that she ordered a supply to serve her guests for the incoronation ceremony of her daughter Queen Elisabeth II in 1953 … since grappa is known to be the best conclusion for and important meal.
It must have remained in the memory of Elisabeth “The Queen Mother”, because in May of 1987, during a visit to Bassano del Grappa she stopped in the historical Grapperia, as did many other personalities to sip a “ciccheto” di grappa.
In Nardini’s archives there is a book bearing her signature for the occasion, a discrete “Elisabeth R”.
