About Bivi Original Sicilian Vodka
Everything about Bivi vodka is straight-up Sicilian swag. Even the name itself comes from the Sicilian-Italian term ‘Bivi!’ - it means ‘to drink (or more often just: ‘drink’).
The vodka in question is crafted in the heart of Sicily. The man behind the drink is said to be ‘old school,’ like its maker and spokesperson, and the way they see it, vodka should reflect precisely how and where it was made. Master Distiller Giovanni La Fauci who’s been in the spirits business since he was only 11. Best believe he is particular about producing vodka! Only using Sicilian lemon and orange wood to fire stills is one thing, but only doing it when the ‘moon is just right’ is taking it to a whole new level. Combine that with the rich volcanic soil, courtesy of Mt. Etna in the distilleries ‘backyard’, and you get yourself a super-exciting tipple. Chazz Palminteri seems to think so. You’d seen him Modern Family, The Usual Suspects, The Bronx Tale, etc. The famous character-actor from the Bronx is a proud Sicilian, an avid Continental European vodka enthusiast, and has collaborated on Bivi since early.
Bivi is made with semolina wheat and pristine local water. It’s pretty intense but with an underlining sweetness.
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
