Dark brown black saffron color. Bold aromas and flavors of molasses fruitcake, chestnut honey, burnt orange, and cocoa powder with a silky, racy, bittersweet medium-to-full body and a bitter, complex, long finish with overtones of bitter roots and bark, pepper, and saffron sugar. An intense amaro with lots of guts.

Herb/spice liqueurs are alcoholic beverages that contain added flavor from the addition of spices, herbs, barks or roots. There are many famous herbal liqueurs in Europe, some of them produced by monks or other religious orders; some of these contain more than 100 herbs as part of the recipes!

These liqueurs are most often served neat, although some are mixed with water and/or ice. Most have an alcoholic range between 35%-55%.
