Poli is an artisanal distillery founded in 1898 by Giobatta Poli. For over a century the Poli family has pursued a goal: to make people understand and appreciate the effort, the tenacity, but above all the love enclosed in a distillate, a complete love for one's art, for one's world, a love without which no result will ever be possible.
Cleopatra Oro is a series of Grappas obtained from very fresh marc, featuring a refinement and bouquet rarely found in a distillate. Refining in oak barrels completes the structure and enriches the aromatic profile.
Why Cleopatra? It is said, that the first still of the history was created by the Egyptian alchemist Cleopatra, who meant to use it to distill the most precious among metals, gold, and called it Crysopea (from Greek chrysos, gold and poirò, to make). After years of research at the Poli Distillery a new Crysopea was born again, the most innovative bain marie vacuum still in function, through which the precious Poli Moscato ORO has been distilled and kept in this bottle.
