"Our Amaro Lucano Anniversario becomes a reserve by making a journey into the essence of taste and pleasure: it is aged for twelve months in barriques that previously housed a wonderful grappa, to give life to something unique. AMARO LUCANO ESSENZA, on the nose, embraces you with the warm power that characterizes our 34-degree Amaro, on the palate it resounds with the enveloping notes of chocolate, dry pastry and candied fruits before being intoxicated by the unmistakable herbaceous bouquet , which is typical for our Bitter.
Amaro Lucano first saw the light in 1894, when Pasquale Vena found the right combination of more than 30 different herbs in the back room of the town’s cookie bakery. As time went on, the bittersweet herbal liqueur became more and more popular, and in the 1950s production was ramped up to keep up with demand. The brand is still family-owned – today the 4th generation – and the liqueur is still made according to the secret recipe from the small bakery in Pisticci. In addition to amari, Lucano also produces sambucca, coffee liqueur and limoncello."
