Devon Distillery is the UK’s first and only micro distillery creating grape-marc-spirit, Dappa. Like it’s Italian counterpart ‘Grappa’, it’s a smooth after-dinner tipple with a beautifully warming effect.
Using a custom-designed, hand-crafted, and authentic Italian copper pot still, our expert distiller produces an after-dinner drink and cocktail tincture of exceptionally high quality. We follow a traditional Italian Grappa recipe and the advice and guidance of seasoned experts from the Veneto region of Italy.
Using the Dappa as the traditional base we have developed our own DEVONCELLO. Devon’s answer to Limoncello.
A very British affair
They may originally be Italian drinks, but Dappa & DEVONCELLO are unmistakably British. Founded by Cosmo Caddy in December 2012, the first vintage of Dappa was completed in October 2013, using the finest grape skins from English vineyards such as Sharpham, Bolney, Three Choirs, Biddenden and others.
We only use British grapes, which would otherwise be wasted during the wine making process. We’re very proud of our Britishness and believe that the drink we produce is unique the world over
DEVONCELLO was launched at Dartington, South Devon on Good Friday 2018.
