The process to make Whiskey

The process to make Whisky doesn't need so much ingredients, but it's very difficult and it takes a very long time.
Only three ingredients are needed:
  1. Barley
  2. Water
  3. Yeast
It's very important to choose very high quality ingredients to obtain a good and tasty product. So, there are some manufacturing steps that is essential to follow:
  • Malting
  • Milling
  • Brewing
  • Fermentation
  • Distillation
  • Filling
  • Maturing
  • Blending
  • Bottling
  • Packaging
As you can see, the procedure is long and articulate, so we're going to explain briefly each passage to understand generally how whisky is made.
Malting
Malting process takes between 8 and 21 days: it consists in spreading wet barley on a malting flor and letting it germinate.
Milling
The Barley is milled with big machines.
Brewing
The griest is mixed with hot water in a mashine: this operation will change the starch in fermenting sugars. This sugared juice is called wort.
Fermentation
First of all, to finish successfully the fermentation, yeast is added.
The action of the yeast on the sugar will originate alcohol and carbon dioxide.It's also important to choose a high quality wash backs.

Interview über das Restaurant “ I TRE SOLDI GORIZIANI”


Stolz wie eine Mutter auf ihr Kind erzählt uns Frau Adriana von ihrem Restaurant, das in Gorizia sehr bekannt und renommiert ist. “ AI TRE SOLDI GORIZIANI” ist das vierte Lokal, das Frau Adriana leitet. Der Name des Restaurants ist mit der Geschichte der Stadt eng verbunden und zwar weist auf die Münze hin, die in der Zeit des österreichen Reiches kursierte.
Der Ort, wo sich dieses Lokal befindet, war früher eine Typographie, die Frau Adriana hat umbauen lassen, um den Ansprűchen ihrer Aktivität nachzukommen. Schon am Eingang fällt die Besonderheit dieses Bautens, der sich in der Länge entwickelt, auf.
Das Lokal wird von Frau Adrianas Familie bewirtschaftet : “ Ich habe die Kochleidenschaft von meiner Mutter geerbt, obwohl sie sich fűr mich nicht diese Zukunft vorgestellt hatte”, berichtet Frau Adriana, die eine emilianische Herkunft hat.
Am Anfang schlug sie Rezepte vor, die sie aus Kochbűchern und Illustrierten entnahm. Dank ihrer Leidenschaft, Kreativität und Hingabe hat sie dann besondere und personalisierte Gerichte selbst entwickelt. Einige traditionelle Gerichte, die man in der Speisekarte finden kann, sind z.B. : Gulash, Jota, Klöβchen, andere vielfältige friaulische Speisen und einige noch aus der Emilia-Romagna. Die meistbestellten Gerichte sind Gulash und Fisch. Alle Speisen sind hausgemacht sowie die ausgezeichneten Kuchen ( Sacher, Strudel und Zuppa Inglese).








Gorizia


The Middle agesexternal image case_gorizia.jpg

The name of Gorizia was for the first time recorded in a document dating AD April 28, 1001, in which the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III donated of the castle and village of Gorizia made to the Patriarch of Aquileia John II and to Count Verihen Eppenstein of Friuli. The document referred to Gorizia as "The village, known in the language of the Slavs as Goriza”.
From the 12th century to the early 16th century the town served as the political and administrative centre of an essentially independent County of Gorizia.



County of Gorizia
The County of Gorizia was a county based around the town of Gorizia in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, current north-eastern Italy. The first count of Gorizia, Meinhard I, is mentioned as early as 1127. The borders of the county changed frequently in the following four centuries, due to frequent wars with the nearby Patriarchate of Aquileia and other counties. The Counts also controlled the March of Treviso (Marca Trevigiana), though for a short while. After the death of Albert's son Henry III, assassinated in 1323, the county suffered a steep decline under the power of their powerful neighbours, the Republic of Venice and the Austrian Empire.
In 1500 the last count of Gorizia, Leonhard, died and according to a contract of inheritance the county fell to Maximilian I of Habsburg. Until 1747 Gorizia formed a County of the Holy Roman Empire ruled by the Inner Austrian Archdukes as part of the Austrian Circle. It was governed by a capitano. Its territory included the upper valley of Isonzo River to Aquileia, the area of Cormons and Duino, and the former Venetian fortress of Gradisca. It was occupied by the Venetians from 1508 until 1509, and in 1511 the County of Gradisca was separated from it by the Habsburgs. In 1747, it ceased to be a separate county and was merged with nearby Gradisca to form the Princely County of Gorizia and Gradisca.
