A truly unique and delicious dinner party experience, guaranteed to send friends home buzzing.
Alternatively, pour into a hip flask to drink alongside a coffee if out on the slopes or enjoying country pursuits such as golfing, fishing and shooting, it will certainly energise and boost your game.
DAPPA is a luxury grape-marc-spirit made in the UK's only micro-distillery of its kind based in the attractive Teignbridge in Devon. With clean, crisp and grassy flavours and hints of berries and earthy tones, it has a young flavour that still presents complexity. The 2013 blend is produced primarily with Pinot Noir and Rondo grape skins and is complimented with small quantities of Dornfelder and Regent, all from English vineyards.
