Amaro Anniversario Lucano is an Italian bitter liqueur created in 1894. The recipe has not changed much, and thank God – because this is exactly how an amaro should taste: pleasant bitterness, light sweetness, dark spices and an herbal freshness. As usual, the recipe is kept secret, but we do know that it contains more than 30 different herbs! This special anniversary edition is bottled at a higher alcohol percentage (34) than usual, which gives a stronger flavor impression.
Colour: Dark and dense, with a brownish tinge at the edge.
Scent: Licorice, orange, sage and mint are noticeable in the scent.
Tasting notes: Intense and rich taste with a fine balance between bitterness and sweetness, perhaps with a slight predominance of sweetness. There are notes of wormwood, mint, orange peel and molasses.
Serving suggestions: Can be enjoyed neat, over ice or in cocktails.
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.
