You will like to know that...

There are so many delicious Italian aperitifs and digestifs on the market right now and Liquore Strega deserves a place among them. First created in 1860, this unique spirit is a vibrant canary yellow that is set off beautifully by its vintage-looking bottle with its raised glass sun. This is especially appropriate as Liquore Strega advertises itself as made out of a sunray.

The word "strega" means "witch" in Italian. The product's hometown of Benevento was considered a gathering place for witches, according to folklore, a fact which clearly influenced the naming of the spirit. Liquore Strega is made using a secret family recipe of about 70 different herbs and spices, which are ground and macerated in grain alcohol before being left to age in ash barrels while the flavours marry and mellow.

This famous product is spicy and minty. Cinnamon, iris, juniper, mint, cloves, star anise, white pepper, and nutmeg are just some of the botanicals making up the blend. The colour is gained from the introduction of saffron to the mix. This unmistakable spirit is as good as it is gorgeous. Traditionally served as a digestif after a meal, it can be enjoyed at any temperature. Now finding its way into exciting cocktails thanks to its great flavour profile, Liquore Strega is a classic that is not going away any time soon.

PRODUCER: Strega.

COUNTRY: Italy.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Crafted from a wide variety of all-natural herbs and spices, the vibrating yellow colour is given by the exquisite saffron. Over 70 different natural ingredients are carefully handpicked and selected to create this spirit. These ingredients, collected from Europe, Central America, and the Orient, are grinded and macerated and integrated with the base spirit prior to the distillation process, carried out in traditional swan neck pot stills. The spirit is then aged in ash barrels for several months in order to incorporate all the aromas and flavours. The final result, a complex and deep blend, spicy and minty, and quite refreshing. Strega is the Italian word for witch, and the legend has it that witches cast a love spell in this concoction, granting forever love to all the couples who drink it. Love potion or not, Liquore Strega works perfectly as a digestif.

Giuseppe Alberti Liquore Strega

- Made of over 70 different barks and herbs, it was first produced in Benevento, central Italy and is steeped in history where it is told that the drink was first made by beautiful female sprites and used their new potion to cast spells on lovesick humans, therby giving its name, Strega, meaning witch.
- It dates back to the 1860's and continues to have a romantic association where legend has it that couples who drink it together will remain united in love forever.
- A perfectly natural product, it obtains its typical yellow colour from the saffron added to the alcoholic infusion; then a long fermentation in oak vats concurs to the perfect balance of the aromas and contributes to the characteristic fine, smooth and soft taste.
- Excellent after a meal, it expresses its versatility in the most varied manners hence assuring an indisputable satisfaction whether sipping it dry, with ice or iced.
- Both the taste and the warm solar colour become the inseparable companions of long-drinks and cocktails, but it is also added to ice cream, fruit salad and as ingredient in cake preparations.
