Taking its name from the nearby Puni river that flows through the Venosta valley the Puni Distillery in "The Italian Highlands" town of Glorenza is Italy's first malt whisky producer. The stunning distillery combines Scottish tradition with state of the art technology to exercise the utmost control and consistency over the distillation process. The pure Apline waters and wide temperature swings make this an ideal place for whisky production. The end result is a range of whiskies that have racked up many gold medals and high scores from numberous publicatios and competitions. Made from locally grown malted rye in combination with malted barley, and malted wheat this unique triple malt offers a flavor combination unlike anything else in the world. The Vina bottling leverages some of the finenst casks Italy has to offer. It is aged 5 years in hand selected Marsala casks from Sicily. Distillery notes: "In PUNI VINA mixed aromas of fruit cake are dominant. Creamy walnuts and sweet sultanas envelop the palate and notes of plums, orange peel and cherry compote with cinnamon complement the full bodied character." It's non chill fitlered and has no added color.

Geography is destiny. So too it is with Puni. They've leveraged the natural abundance of Italy to make a world class malt whiskey that could not be produced anywhere else. Their local rye is world class. It's been malted with barley and wheat and then aged in Marsala casks - one of Italy's finest exports and a great dessert wine of the world. The result is a whisky that shows off tons of raisined sweetness like a PX sherry cask, but with a wholly different flavor. Orange marmalade and candied apples come to mind. It's no wonder Puni has taken the world whisky category by storm.
