Punzoné, which means ‘punch’ in Italian, was single handedly brought to market by Frank Guerrera, a New York based Italian-American entrepreneur whose vision to create an all-organic and pure line of Italian vodka was brought to life by his intense passion. Punzoné is distributed by MHW, Ltd. and Allied Beverage Group and is imported directly from Piemonte, Italy’s preeminent food and wine geography. All products are USDA Organic and EU Organic certified. Punzoné was launched in July 2012 and is the first organic vodka recipient of the 5-Star Diamond Award by the Academy of Hospitality Sciences.
Punzoné is comprised of three organic beverages:
Ultra-premium Punzoné Vodka is uniquely handcrafted in a five-column distillation system from Italian wheat grown in Piemonte, Italy. It is precisely blended with pristine water from the Italian Alps to ensure that no unnatural additives taint its unmistakably smooth, velvety consistency resulting in superior organic excellence.
Punzoné ‘Blood Orange’ Originale is an exquisite fusion of ultra-premium vodka enlivened with organic Sangiovese-grape sangria and natural blood oranges, sourced from the finest organic groves in Calabria. Punzoné Originale is the ‘original’ Punzoné recipe that has been perfected and handcrafted for decades. It is best consumed on the rocks, shaken and chilled as a martini, or as the perfect ingredient for any cocktail creation.
Punzoné ‘Sicilian’ Lemoncino is a delicate blend of its ultra-premium vodka refreshed with white sangria from organic Chardonnay grapes grown in the Abruzzo region and natural Sicilian lemons. It is best consumed on the rocks, shaken and chilled as a martini, or as the perfect ingredient for any cocktail creation. Don’t confuse it with lemoncello - the taste isn’t even comparable!
