HOW IT'S MADE
The heather is a shrub typical of the Mediterranean scrub.
Only about one third of the heather shrubs generate a rhizome that develops between the roots of the plant and that after 50/60 years of life becomes large enough to be harvested.
Once extracted, the log is stored with care in a humid and cool place to prevent damage while waiting to be cut into pieces of the required size.
After the manual cut, the sketches are boiled for about 12 hours. This process has the purpose of stabilizing the briar and expelling the tannin present in all the roots.
Subsequently, the natural seasoning takes place in protected environments. Generally the briar is left to mature for at least 12 months.
