Overview

Distilleria Beccaris was established thanks to a sort of “game of chance”. In fact , in 1951 its founder Elio Beccaris decided to start its own firm but he did not know whether it had to be a distillery, a winery or a vinegar factory. So he made his new born son Carlo decide by putting three slips of paper with the three alternatives in a hat and letting him take one, the ultimate decision should be taken by his innocent and unaware hand and it proved to be the lucky one. Carlo Beccaris now show in his personality the same rare and essential characteristics of seriousness of his firm, handicraft care and passion originating high quality. The production cycle starts at the end of the summer with the selection of the best marcs from the vineyards located in the heart of the region between Langhe and Monferrato. Then come the other phases of production: distillation, ageing, and the packaging of the bottles that every year are put on the market after a carefully controlled process.

We had a wonderfully informative tour and tasting. The make many different grappas and fruit or nut extracted alcoholic beverages. Also delicious grappa-soaked cherries, apricots, and chocolates. We like their "Strave" 1997 grappa best; if a little too strong, add up to 20% water. Unfortunately,...More

We visited Beccaris one hot afternoon and were pleasantly surprised with the wide range of beverages that were locally produced and the quality. They produce grappa, lemoncello, sambuca, and many flavoured liquors which were enjoyed by all.
