On the 27th of January at “Distillerie di Ronchi di Percato” (Udine), Adonis, historical member of the jury, has rewarded the young no profit association P(our).
P(our) received the “Risit d’Aur” for the “Despenza Amazonica”. The concept behind this project is to create an environmental and sustainable structure in the Amazonian rainforest, to save “Aje’ Negro”, a fermented sauce made with bitter manioc, which is the result of a thousand-year-old culture and is prepared by the indigenous populations.
The association composed by leading personality cocktail industry (Monica Berg, Simone Caporale, Alex Kratena, Jorge Meyer, Ryan Chetiyawardana, Jim Meehan & Xavier Padovani) wanted to help and make independent the “Bora Tribe”.
The production and the revenues of this sauce will allow the 44 families belonging to the tribe to live a new and self-sufficient life.
Italspirits community would like to celebrate P(our) and all the people involved that supported the project with effort and humanity.
