Malt whiskey from the Jacopo Poli distillery in Schiavon.
The first Italian whiskey aged in Amarone barrels was born with the Secretary of State whiskey from Poli.
This is the new edition of Italian whiskey by Poli, few bottles, all numbered and contained in an elegant metal tube.
An idea to produce an Italian single malt whiskey born in 2013 and patiently, pragmatically brought to a conclusion in 2021 with the birth of secretary of state whisky.
After months of work, the tastiest and most suitable barley was selected for malting which took place with the control and collaboration of important experts.
Subsequently, the Poli family modified and adapted the bain-marie alembic to proceed with the distillation.
A careful distillation not to spoil the aromas of the malt.
Having obtained a spirit of international character but with an Italian elegance and Venetian frankness, the distillate was refined in barrels previously used for Amarone wine.
The long aging that took place in the cellars of the distillery in Schiavon, with the hot summer and cold winter climate, have exalted the Secretary of State whiskeys.
In 2021 the first edition of Poli whiskey was bottled.
A beautiful ground bottle and an important wooden box were chosen, to enhance the exclusivity of the product, exclusivity underlined by the numbering of the bottles produced.
But the anecdotes about Poli's Italian whiskey don't end there, the name chosen is a tribute to the most illustrious fellow villager of Schiavon who on 15 October 2013 became secretary of state of the Holy See.
An event that deserves to be celebrated not only with the name of the new Poli whiskey but also with the plan of St. Peter's basilica printed on the packaging and on the label of this extraordinary whisky.

We recommend pairing Poli's Secretary of State Whiskey with Zino Davidoff cigars and savoring slowly.
The ideal glass to taste this marvel is the tulip, which thanks to the upper opening which is narrower than the body, is able to concentrate the perfumes in a limited area, so as not to lose even a nuance.
