Representing the oldest family tradition in the peppermint sector in Pancalieri, the Chialvas have been working with the herb for five generations, growing it from 1865 and distilling it from 1926. Their company, Chialvamenta, achieves excellent quality by overseeing the entire supply chain directly with constant innovation and eco-awareness. To enjoy ChialvaMenta’s specialities is to discover more than 150 years of history. The firm began life as a wholesaler of the finest zero-mile peppermint for top-of-the-range national and international markets, and in 2012 created the exclusive ChialvaMenta, which culminates its production chain. The renowned peppermint of Pancalieri is unanimously recognised as the best in the world for its delicate scent and pleasant flavour. Using the most advanced quality control systems, ChialvaMenta transforms it into syrups, liqueurs, sweets and infusions, while precious essential oil, 100% pure and natural, is available as a primary ingredient. The Antica Distilleria Chialva and its open-field crops, the Sala Nicolao Chialva, the drying plants, Villa Giacosa Valfrè di Bonzo, the family’s historic residence, the Museum of Mint and Officinal Plants, are further attractions for guests, who the Chialva family are always pleased to welcome to events, exhibitions, workshops, conferences and tastings. All specialities are available on line at menta.it and in the best shops.
