Puni Distillery was founded by the Ebensperger family in 2010 and started distilling in February 2012.
The distillery takes its name from the Puni River, which flows nearby, and it’s the first whisky producer in Italy. The Ebenspergers developed own whisky formula, which includes malted barley, malted wheat and malted rye. Apart from regular warehouses spirit ages in neglected military bunkers from the Second World War rented just for that purpose. Thick concrete walls provide constant temperature and fairly high humidity level. Puni Gold was matured exclusively in first fill bourbon barrels, in above-ground warehouses.
