new grappa flight in November

Yes, November brings a new grappa flight to tidbit!

Tidbit is the place in Seattle where you can find the largest collection of grappas. We are proud of being the first restaurant to offer grappa and cello flight, something that other Seattle restaurants are now imitating!

This November, tidbit is offering an exciting grappa flight! Our November selection includes aromatic grappas from Nardini producer. Nardini is one of the oldest distillers of acquavite from the region of Veneto in Northern Italy. Aquavite (grappa) Nardini has been produced and bottled in Bassano del Grappa, in the northeastern part of Italy, since 1779. The founder of Italy’s most traditional distillery was Bortolo Nardini who purchased in April of that year, an Inn at the eastern entrance of the famous wooden covered Bassano bridge, on the Brenta river bank. The Inn soon became the “Grapperia Nardini”, strategically located for both the ample water supply, a necessary element in the distillation process, as well as its accessibility to the local regional markets, Venice in primis.

The flight for the month of November includes Acquavite di Vinaccia Bianca, Acqua di Cedro, and the grappa style liqueur Tagliatella.
