In a glass, place the singani along with three cute ice stones, complete with ginger ale and two coca leaves, stir and enjoy.
Singani is produced from the Muscat grape of Alexandria. It is a distillate originating in Bolivia that already has a designation of origin. One of the main characteristics of this drink is given by the height at which the grapes are grown (between 1800 and 2200 meters above sea level). This gives you organoleptic singularities that retain the aroma more and better.
The elaboration process consists of fermenting the grapes for seven days and then distilling it in still until it reaches seventy degrees. According to the regulations, it is not allowed to add sugar, but it can be lowered with water to forty degrees of alcohol . The good thing is that singani doesn't get old.
Although there are records of Bolivian grape distillates dating from before 1660, it was only in the middle of the nineteenth century that on a farm named Singani, in the region of Potosí, began to be produced, bottled and marketed. This drink is consumed alone or combined in Bolivia and export is scarce. It provides work to many families, some data show that there are more than four thousand who participate in the production chain of singani.
Although it sounds strange to say so, it turns out that for this distillate to cross borders , something had to come from “up there” to make it known. In filming Che's film in Bolivian lands, film director Stephen Soderbergh tried singani and seems to have liked it so much that he decided to start a project to produce his own brand in the United States: Singani 63.
