Marolo Destilleria or the Distilleria Santa Teresa was founded by Paolo Marolo in 1977. They purposed to make very meticulous and expertly crafted grappa--the traditional "peasant" brandy made from the skin and seeds of wine grapes after they've been pressed for wine production.
Milla liqueur begins as a grappa made from the Italian Nebbiolo red wine grape. It is then infused with camomile petals and sweetened prior to bottling. The infusion is a classic maceration--or steeping like a tea bag in hot water--for a full 11 months prior to bottling. Milla was rebranded from the former Liquor of Grappa and Chamomile." They suggest drinking chilled.
