PRODUCER: The Antica Classic Sambuca brand was crafted by Rossi D'Asoago, Italy. The company relaunched in 2004. Today, the brand is famous, not only in Italy but around the world.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: The alcohol base used in this is made from sugar derived from beets. Alcohol made from sugar (much like rum) is not uncommon, as it provides a tasteless base. In liqueurs, sugars are added to make the drink sweeter. Beet sugar is also used for this. Almost a dozen botanicals are included in the making of this drink, including cinnamon, white pepper, sweet orange, rose, wormwood, anise, and fennel. Antica Classic Sambuca also insists on using demineralized water in its distilling process.
