Description of Antica Classic Sambuca

Antica Classic Sambuca


  • Colour: No colourings are added to this liqueur, keeping it clear in the bottle and the glass.
  • Aroma: As with most Sambucas, star anise provides the main scent. Some other botanicals that lend their scent to this beverage include cinnamon, fennel, iris, coriander, roses, and citrus fruits. Altogether, this makes for a one-of-a-kind scent profile.
  • Taste: As a liqueur, this alcoholic beverage is sweeter than most. This helps the drink to go down smoothly. The botanicals that provide this drink with its signature scent also provides it with a similar taste. Overall, this drink is spicy and sweet at the same time!

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.

- The steam distillation of star anise fruits together with an infusion of sweet orange, coriander, iris, Turkish rose and many other herbs, form the basis of the most famous Italian liqueur: Antica Sambuca. Mixing the star anise distillate with essential oils, fine spirits and the purest white sugar gives the product a pleasant anise aroma.

Colour: Crystal-clear.
Aroma: Plleasant anise aroma.
Flavour: Velvety, harmonious and intense. Sweet, but on contact with the palate it remains smooth with hints of sourness.
