“Meeting Giancarlo Guzzo has given me the opportunity to understand that tobacco is deeply rooted in the farming tradition of our country and our soil”. This is what Teo said in 2013 when he had the inspiration to create one of the most peculiar versions of Xyauyù.Up to that moment, he had aged this extraordinary oxidized beer in barrels that had previously hosted great rums or whiskies. Now he was trying to infuse his creature with the soul of a typically Italian product, which however has nothing to do with the world of food and drinks. The result is an extremely intriguing and captivating version of Xyauyù.
