The Spirit of Italy is an organization of eight companies that it was founded in 2011 by some of Italy’s finest producers
of Spirits, Amari, Liqueurs and Aperitifs who have been in business for generations.
The opportunity to experience such a prestigious portfolio of products all under one roof is unprecedented. These companies have decided to join forces altogether, in order to deliver great initiatives geared towards industry professionals and consumers alike.
I am very honored to be able to represent TSOI through product knowledge seminars, tasting and mixology activities. There is much more inside the bottle than just an alcoholic beverage. These companies are the embodiment of quality through the selection of their ingredients used in the making, centuries-old recipes and great Italian design expressed through their labels and advertising artwork. When you experience The Spirit Of Italy, in every sip, you experience a country that has been fundamental in the development of civilization, the home of some of the best foods, beverages and life styles available in the world!
