Since 1948, the Alpe Distillery has been managed with passion and expertise by the Calvetti Family.
This family-run business specialises in producing traditional liqueurs and grappas of the Aosta Valley.
This artisan production, marked by constant research for the best quality, follows the traditions of Aosta Valley’s ancient distillers. Thus, with the same procedures and perfection, our liqueurs, produced by brewing and distilling rare alpine herbs, entirely preserve the perfumes and healthy properties of the Italian Alps.
Fulvio & Giulia Calvetti use a wide array of local herbs, roots and spices to create their terroir-driven, alpine inspired infusions. Some ingredients macerated to create Alpes “Amer Du Val D’Aoste” include mint, wormwood, cinchona bark, gentian, baking spices, rhubarb root, licorice and orange peel, among others. The Amer gets its deep amber and mahogany hue from the addition of hibiscus and the natural oxidation of spirit and sugar. One sip will transport you directly to Valle d’Aoste. Simultaneously bitter, sweet, warm and cooling, you all need this freshness in your glasses and bellies!
