With the rare ingredient in hand, he begins to precisely execute the secret recipe, distilling it
in traditional copper crucibles.
The process results in a transparent distillate, which – after being diluted with pure water to reach 26% Alc. – is combined with sugar, according to the traditional recipe. This unique marriage makes Stichion so different and gives it a rich aroma, balanced sweet character, robust and full bodied, with a creamy and rich texture.
