“Frutti di Bosco” is the only commercial enterprise in Sardinia to grow fresh berries It is located in the countryside of Tempio Pausania at an altitude of 554 metres above the sea level and at the foot of Mountain Limbara.
In 2019 the agricultural business diversified with an artisanal distillery called “Arsura”. The Distillery produces a 100% acorn distillate with manually harvested cork oak acorns without sugar or caramel additives or aging in wood barrel.
Entirely hand made in Sardinia including the wooden gift case which is crafted and fire branded in Mamoiada, the braille label printed in Ortacesus and the cork tag produced in Calangianus.
The acorn distillate is unique, the only one produced in the world. The acorns are hand-picked then dried and ground. By adding enzymes the starch becomes sugar after fermentation. It is distilled in copper alembic stills of 140 litres capacity which have been uniquely engineered for “Arsura”.
The notes, scents and flavors are soft and elegant, free from acidity. The yearly production of “Arsura” Acorn Distillate is strictly limited to 2000 individually numbered bottles.
