Italicus Rosolio Di Bergamotto Liqueur
Italicus is lightly citrusy on the nose with hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, fresh tones of ripe citrus fruits are balanced with a light bitter and floral spice before giving way to a complex and long lasting finish.
The new brainchild by Giuseppe Gallo that encapsulates the italian art, architecture and poetry in a liquid form: grown, harvested and made in Italy!
Remaining faithful to the historic origins of Rosolio, the original Italian aperitivo once enjoyed by the King of Savoy, Italicus is masterfully created using a recipe which dates back to the late 1800s. So popular was Rosolio in the 19th Century that each of Italy’s regions had their own distinctive variations - enjoyed as the aperitivo of the people.
First prepared by 13th century Italian monks as herbal medicines and elixirs, Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been combined with flavoring agents. A range of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits and flowers can be used, and a sweetener such as sugar or corn syrup is often added. While typically rather sweet, some examples are herbaceous or tart and pair exceptionally well with desserts or act as a delightful addition to cocktails.
