‘I cannot think of a better place to speak to young people and start-ups about the future. A future that today already demands a clear change towards marketing with more than just profit as an objective. Instead its aims should focus on the environment and community. Through the book, Essentials of Modern Marketing, we want to guide students, young managers and entrepreneurs to work towards a sustainable and considerate economy,’ states Gabriele Carboni who is the keynote speaker. He will discuss how companies and young people can harness digital media to move into a new post-pandemic era.

Carboni will be presented with a copy of the book, ‘Essentials of Modern Marketing – Made in Italy edition’ by Kotler & partners during the event, and it will be available to buy from Amazon worldwide. With the support of the e-commerce giant, every single copy of the book will be printed on demand and in the closest possible location to the delivery address, avoiding paper waste and long-distance transport.

Kotler Impact, the global publisher of the book alongside Weevo – the company supporting the project in Italy – have decided to make the book available at a very low price with the aim of introducing young people to ethical marketing:  €25.00 instead of the usual €65.00.

The publication contains more than 30 case studies about outstanding Italian companies. It is the first marketing book in the world to present success stories focussed on one country. The companies included in the project are: Danone, Clementoni, Aboca, Bauli, Bormioli Pharma, iliad, GEA, IMA Group, IRIS Ceramica Group, Knauf, Automobili Lamborghini, NWG Italia, OCMIS, Safilo Group, 360 Payment Solutions, Curti Lamiere, D-Orbit, Felsinea Ristorazione, Flashpoint, Integra Fragrances, Kopron, M.T., Distilleria Petrone, Rejoint, RGR Comunicazione, SB Impianti, Tapì Group, Tecopress, Top Automazioni, Trenton, Ugolini, Fedrigoni, Sitma, Ilsa.

The world’s most remarkable spirits – here’s our list

tapigroup 5 November 2021 0

From vodka filtered through 4-billion-year-old meteorite rock to gin crafted with water from the Mediterranean Sea. Our listing of the world’s most remarkable spirits

The world of alcoholic drinks is highly varied, not least when it comes to spirits.

Alongside the solid traditions of centuries-old brands, there are also experimental products and labels. These have been created to meet ever-more discerning consumer demand, striving to capture inventive and very specific flavours.

This sector is in a constant state of change, but we have pinpointed a few of the more unusual spirits from around the world. From vodka filtered through 4-billion-year-old meteorite rock to gin crafted with water from the Mediterranean Sea.

Read on to find out about them all.

Outer Space Vodka

Outer Space is the brand name and that of the vodka. It is made from premium American maize and distilled five times over, giving it an ultra-clean flavour. The label tells us that its last filtering takes place using 4-billion-year-old meteorite rock – originating from the collision between the earth and other celestial objects.

Outer Space vodka – with its bottle in the shape of an alien’s head – has won over consumers with its flavour and its quirkiness. And most importantly on social media.


MUMA Gin is an entirely Italian product, created with the aim of making Puglian flavours well-known across the world.

Its singularity certainly comes from the ingredients and aromas used to plunge the consumer into the Mediterranean culture. Chamomile, juniper, iris, lemon and orange blend with the gin’s leading light – purified water from the Mediterranean Sea.

A winning idea for a product that commands all the senses, taking you on a journey for its own sake.

Anty Gin

There are probably many examples of spirits that contain worms, scorpions and other unusual creatures. But this is a first in the gin world. At least until now as Cambridge Distillery has produced its own Anty Gin.

The idea to use formic acid was without a doubt eccentric with the acid being taken from red wood ants. It seems that when this substance encounters alcohol, it produces aromas and flavours that vastly enhance the flavours of fermented and distilled drinks.

Every bottle contains an extract made from precisely 62 red ants. And even though Anty Gin is no longer available to buy as it’s a limited-edition product, it certainly deserves to be on the list of the most remarkable spirits in the world.

Pumpkin Spice Moonshine

Made by Corsair Distillery in Nashville, Pumpkin Spice Moonshine is a whisky that has reinvented the late 19th century brewing tradition – a time when beer was made from plants.

In the same vein, this whisky is distilled using pumpkins, amongst other things.

Obviously, the recipe is secret, but it is one of the most interesting – and daring – experiments of recent years.

Bakon Vodka

No grains have been mixed in the making of this vodka!

Only the best quality American potatoes, grown in the north-west and with the delicious flavour of bacon.

The result is Bakon Vodka – a product with a clean, crisp flavour. There’s no smokiness, making it perfect to enjoy neat or in a top-notch Bloody Mary.

Not just spirits – some other quirky yet bold drinks

The desire to experiment has spread beyond the spirits’ sector. It is a broader trend in the alcoholic drinks market.

In recent years we have noted ideas of varying degrees of daring. Not least, Pizza Beer, made with a pizza Margherita infusion, or Squirrel Beer that has 55% alcohol content and is sold in an embalmed squirrel.

And then there’s Snake Wine, holding its own in this listing. Available in Asia, it is created through the infusion of whole snakes immersed in rice wine.
