Bitter Del Professore is made by infusing alcohol with herbs and spices, all ingredients are infused separately and then blended to taste to create the perfect flavour. They treat each of their ingredients with great care – infusing the bitter orange peels from Calabria as soon as they arrive at the distillery, brushing clean the wild gentian rather than washing it with water, extracting the pink core of the small sweet rhubarb from the Lanzo and Soana valleys to name just a few examples.
Bitter Del Professore translates into a unique liquor, ruby red in colour. It offers pleasant and complex notes of cascarilla, juniper and pepper with fresh scents of orange and bergamot.

The Winery: The Jerry Thomas Project
The Jerry Thomas Project is no ordinary producer, it is better known as Rome’s best speakeasy cocktail bar. Its recent partnership with Antica Distilleria Quaglia in a bid to start producing spirits as well as serving them, is a breath of fresh air. The Project is not just a tribute to the ‘father of American mixology’ Jeremiah Thomas, it is also a rediscovery of forgotten Italian spirits, a celebration of prohibition drinks with an Italian twist and an advocate for high quality products made with high quality raw Italian ingredients.
