The unique colour, texture and sheen of the grapes served as inspiration for the design of the nonino travel flask. Scholten & baijings combined artisanal skills, craftsmanship and tradition with high-quality materials and the latest titanium production techniques. Titanium is a premium metal that is very strong, extremely light, corrosion resistant, not poisonous and therefore ideally suited for transporting and storing grappa. The titanium travel flask has a removable cup, making it possible to enjoy a sip of grappa while on the go.

Nonino, the exclusive italian, more than 100-year-old, grappa brand. Grappa is a distilled italian alcoholic drink made from the remains of the grapes (skins, seeds and pulp) left over from the winemaking process. This was originally a way of preventing left over from going to waste. Thanks to the nonino monovitigno® revolution, today grappa is considered a delicacy. The nonino grappa varieties, distilled with artisanal method for travel flasks, are made exclusively from chardonnay grapes (then allowed to mature for a year in oak casks), prosecco grape, moscato grape and merlot grape.

Inspired by dutch masters, who have been trying to capture the beauty of the grape on canvas ever since the 16th century, scholten & baijings designed five different colour series. The colours are applied to the titanium flasks by means of a unique anodizing technique. The five colour compositions complement the five selected nonino grappa monovitigno® varieties:

1 dark blue filled with grappa nonino monovitgno® chardonnay in barriques

2 grey/green filled with grappa nonino monovitgno® prosecco bianco

3 yellow filled with grappa nonino monovitgno® moscato

4 red/pink filled with grappa nonino monovitgno® merlot

5 light blue filled with cuvée nonino grappa monovitigni® millesimata
