Bear Hug

By |July 10th, 2015|

We named Bear Hug Infusions as a celebration of the worlds many cultures and our recent travels to far-off places.

As we travelled many of the infused cocktails we were enjoying were made with sweet fruit…looking up at the mountains we all agreed that mother natures touch is magically delicious. It was from this thought the name Bear Hug was born.

Delving into the local fares and cultures each of us laid claim to our favorite Bear Hug Infusion and sought out to find similar concoctions. The infusions that turned our heads upside-down range from sweet, tart, spicy and salty!

We trust that through our Infusions you too will find your favorite Bear Hug.

Vicenza and its surroundings are renowned for the Renaissant architect Palladio, whose artistic heritage reshaped the whole region.
The city center itself has been declared “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO. Palladio (1508-81) created the concept of “villa Veneta”, a noble rural house shaped like a classic temple. His example was followed by many. Pigafetta, our fellow citizen, in 1519 was the first to circumnavigate the globe with Magellan, bringing our typical entrepreneurship and passion worldwide.

Initially the production was based above all on distillates, alcohol and derivatives of wine processing but, gradually, the Caffo distillery began to produce and make known on the market some liqueurs obtained from ancient recipes, the result of patient and meticulous research and re-elaborations. These products, the result of skilful dosages of aromatic and officinal herbs, infused in high quality alcohol, immediately won the favor of gourmets and the refined clientele of the time. The then very young Sebastiano Caffo (1901), began to learn from his father all the secrets of his ancient and noble profession, soon becoming himself “Master Distiller”, and proving to be able to conduct, in addition to the family business, also other distilleries taken under management including that of S. Paolo di Noto and that of Castiglione di Sicilia. In the meantime, the other “Caffo Brothers”, sons of the founder, had also gained experience in the sector having returned after twenty years from Australia, with the intention of strengthening the family business. Thus was born the company “Fratelli Caffo – Distilleries of alcohol, brandy and tartaric”, established between Sebastiano, Santo and Giuseppe Caffo with the aim of growing the family business by acquiring an existing plant in Calabria in Limbadi, a locality at the time famous for its production of excellent red wine. The presence of the distillery on a territory of great wine production made it possible to find large quantities of raw materials to be distilled on site, both fresh pomace and wines, with little competition compared to Sicily. While respecting the artisan tradition of the company, the Caffo brothers made fundamental transformations over time to the distillation equipment and to the processing of liqueurs to obtain an optimal result. In 1966 the company was totally acquired by Sebastiano Caffo with his son Giuseppe Giovanni, who still today at the top of the group continues the family tradition together with his son Sebastiano Giovanni who took over from his grandfather very young.

Our Lugana Prestige summarizes in its name the mix of top-quality elements that give it its special personality: clay-rich soil that is unique of its kind; the mild microclimate of Lake Garda; and the aristocratic indigenous Turbiana variety, which yields grapes with very particular typical characteristics. The grape selection for the production of Prestige takes place exclusively in the fairly mature Turbiana vineyards of the Maiolo property, the principal site of the Cà Maiol Estate.
