Distillery Notes

78 Degrees Distillery was founded in 2014 by winemaker Sacha La Forgia. After completing his degree, Sacha left Australia to work 13 vintages in famed wine-making regions across the globe. During his final stop in Frulia Italy, Sacha spent time at a Grappa distillery where he met a distiller who recognised his ability and passion and encouraged him to return to Australia and start his own distillery. 78° is the boiling point of alcohol, water boils at 100° so 78° is the magic number that let’s us distil.
