Drink This Now: The Singroni with Singani 63

Since we are all spending more time at home these days, cocktail lovers and home bartenders are finding creative ways to refresh classics. Case in point: the traditionally gin-based Negroni, made here with Singani 63 Brandy to create the ‘Singroni’ created by acclaimed mixologist Rael Petit.  A single bottle of Singani 63 can easily become your “One Bottle Bar” and transform old standards into new favorites.

The small batch, Bolivian craft brand was started by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh after he first tasted the 500 year old spirit while filming the movie Che a decade ago.

Soderbergh’s Singani 63 built its brand with early adoption by the country’s top mixologists, as well as independent restaurant and bar owners. However, with the pandemic tragically forcing the closure of most venues and keeping Singani fans indoors, Soderbergh found a way to sell directly -and nationwide, via BuySingani63.com to the consumer and offer some added-value rewards at the same time.

Impeccably clean and undeniably mixable, Singani 63 has a rich history that is distilled high in the Andes from Muscat of Alexandria grapes. The award-winning brandy, and the national drink of Bolivia, is highly regarded for its dried fruit, sweet, grape and spicy flavor notes, and its clean finish.

“Singani 63 is one of the most versatile spirits I have in my arsenal,” explains Petit. “I love to use it for new takes on classic cocktails such as the Negroni. The “Singroni” as we call it is the perfect balance between bitters and floral flavors. Singani brings some notes of orange blossom and rose water when combined with the Aperol.”
