A SIP OF GRAPPA GROWS THE BERTA FOREST IN KENYA

400 trees already planted and a CO2 reduction of 120,250 kg. These are the concrete results that Distillerie Berta has achieved to date thanks to the reforestation project launched in May 2020 in collaboration with Treedom.

With the purchase of a bottle of Grappa Aged Elisi or Grappa Unica, you contribute to the creation of the Berta Forest which is taking shape in Kenya: a new tree is planted for each order which is given to the customer and will bear his name throughout the life span. Through a code the owner can view it online and follow its growth, step by step.

“The initiative is having a great following. - Says the Berta family - Customers, who by purchasing Elisi and Unica, receive a tree and follow the evolution from a distance and are very gratified by the opportunity to be part of a larger project, concretely participating in the creation of a cleaner world and greener. We will proceed shortly with the purchase of about another 500 trees, because we are increasingly certain of how vital the balance with nature is for man. "

Grappa Aged Elisi is a warm, soft and enveloping grappa, distilled mainly from Barbera pomace and aged in barrels of different woods. The assembly of the different vintages and the different vines give the elegance, the complexity of aromas and the emotions that only the great spirits of the world can convey.

Grappa Unica is a young distillate, dry on the palate and elegant on the nose, obtained from the distillation with the traditional method of selected vines, followed by aging in stainless steel barrels for 3-6 months.

This ambitious project is not the first for Distillerie Berta which, with "Elisi per il Sociale" in previous years has dedicated part of the revenues from the sale of the homonymous grappa to the collection of economic resources to support the cooperative Fraternity and Friendship , a committed Milanese company in supporting families of people with mental disabilities. The young people who were guests of the community drew splendid paintings which then “dressed” the Elisi grappa, thanks to a special label, and created the sculptures installed in the distillery's park.

Treedom is the only web platform in the world that allows you to plant a tree remotely and follow it online. Since its foundation in 2010 in Florence, more than 1,000,000 trees have been planted in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Italy. All trees are planted directly by local farmers and contribute to environmental, social and economic benefits.
