What is National Singani Day?
Singani Day is a celebration of the national spirit of Bolivia in the United States after the U.S. Government (TTB) officially recognized Singani as a “distinct product of Bolivia” and a specific “type” of Brandy making it the newest spirits category in the U.S. after an eight year effort by filmmaker Steven Soderbergh and the Bolivian government; the first new category in over a decade. Singani, with a history dating back 500 years, had never been out of landlocked Bolivia until filmmaker Steven Soderbergh fell in love with it during the filming of the movie Che and imported it to the US where it is now available across the country on drinks menus, bar shelves and for nationwide shipping.
