43% ABV, 750 ml
"Italian whisky made with malted barley, malted rye and malted wheat! ALBA (which is Italian for 'dawn' and also Scottish Gaelic for 'Scotland') is aged for three years in Sicilian Marsala casks before a finishing period in casks that previously held peated whisky from Islay."
Begun in 2010, PUNI is Italy’s first and only whisky producer. Hailing from South Tyrol, a province in the northeast of the country, the distillery takes its name from the nearby Puni River. An ideal location for whisky production, the “Highlands of Italy” have a long tradition of growing grain, with rye the dominant variety due to the area’s dry climate and low precipitation. PUNI uses this locally grown rye in its triple-grain mash bill along with malted barley and wheat, contributing a distinct flavor that speaks to PUNI’s vibrant location.
"Puni distillery produces this first Italian whisky in the "Highlands of Italy." Alba, the Gaelic name for Scotland and the Italian word for "sunrise,", is one in a series of three Puni whiskies. It combines regional barley malt, wheat, rye, and Alpine spring water before the mixture is aged three years in barrels from the Isle of Isay and barrels of Marsala from Sicily. Parts of the whisky are aged in old World War II military bunkers. Puni Alba is bottled at 43% ABV." The Distiller
