Vecchia Romagna unveils rare expression to mark 200th anniversary

Italian brandy maker Vecchia Romagna has unveiled a limited-edition expression to mark its 200th anniversary.

The Riserva Anniversario will be released in a limited run of 200 crystal decanters, each handcrafted, individually numbered and signed by the Salviati master glassmakers in Murano, Venice.

Each decanter also comes with a bespoke case and a glorifier inspired by the staves of the oak barrels used to aged Vecchia Romagna's spirits, and featuring hand-stitched Italian leather.

Rooted in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, Riserva Anniversario is designed as a showcase of traditional techniques, flavours and vintages, paying homage to the distillery's history while also celebrating the business' sense of modernity. It was created by blending liquids from five individually selected casks, dating back as far as 1952.

Bottled at 48% ABV, Vecchia Romagna says the brandy has its hallmark notes of caramel, dark and tropical fruits, cinnamon, clove, mace and cardamom. Riserva Anniversario forms part of a growing portfolio of premium Italian aged brown spirits at Vecchia Romagna.

Marco Ferrari, CEO of Gruppo Montenegro, said: "With this truly rare and expertly crafted limited release we bring to life the vision that legitimises Italian aged spirits and allows them to play the role they deserve in the world of premium and super-premium alcoholic beverages.

"Following the success of Vecchia Romagna Etichetta Nera and Tre Botti, Riserva Anniversario is the third pillar in the Vecchia Romagna Reserve range - a growing portfolio of premium spirits driven by the insatiable demand around the world for all that is Italian."

The first decanters of Riserva Anniversario will go on sale with The Whisky Exchange, RRP £3,500.
