In the sixth edition of the Annual Berlin International Spirits Competition, Distilleria F.lli Caffo Srl was awarded the prize for Best Italian Distillery 2019. The jury of experts in the spirits sector was called to evaluate over 300 specialties from 19 countries around the world world and awarded further prestigious awards to Caffo liqueurs: from the Gold Medal for the Limoncino dell'Isola, to the Silver Medal for the 1969 Heritage Brandy Riserva , up to the Bronze Medal for the "Sgnape dal Fogolar" grappa .
The organizers of the event recalled, in their final declaration and in the congratulatory message sent to the Caffo Distilleria, that the jurors themselves found themselves choosing the winners among prestigious liqueurs and distillates, considering the quality demonstrated by Caffo products to be very high. These international awards confirm the value of the ancient recipes resulting from years and years of research and reworking. The Caffo Group deliberately did not present its best-known brands such as Vecchio Amaro del Capo or Borsci S. Marzano in the competition, products that have already received numerous national and international awards. Caffo has bet on less known products obtaining an exceptional result.
"These acknowledgments represent great satisfaction for us and confirmation of our constant commitment to the search for high-quality products capable of satisfying even the most demanding palates" - says Nuccio Caffo , the company's CEO - "The award for Best Distilleria Italiana is undoubtedly a source of pride, but also a great responsibility because it makes us bearers of Italian taste in the world. The certificates of the Berlin jury are a further incentive to continue on the path taken and we look to the future with confidence in the belief that we will continue to amaze our audience with novelties and delights to drink and taste in purity or declined in other formulas such as cocktails, desserts and much more even more."
The characteristics of the winners follow in detail, all made entirely in the historic site of Limbadi in Calabria, with the exception of Sgnape dal Fogolar, produced in the Friuli branch of Caffo specialized in the distillation of grappa and spirits and their aging.
