Averna - the authentic Italian after-dinner amaro is celebrating its 150th anniversary with the launch of the first ever aged edition, Averna Riserva Don Salvatore.
The ancient Averna recipe is aged in small selected oak casks for 18 months, producing a mature liquid and rich Mediterranean bouquet inspired by Don Salvatore Averna,
who received the secret recipe as a gift from Frà Girolamo, a Benedictine monk of Caltanissetta, Sicily, 150 years ago.
Don Salvatore production
The production of Averna Riserva Don Salvatore is a closely guarded secret that begins with combining herbs, roots and natural spices with aromas and fragrances of Sicilian citrus. Its sophisticated blend of subtle flavors leave a smooth after-taste that enhance the overall quality experience.
An enchanting mixture of wooden scents blend with touches of spices and dried fruits, including fig, berries, plums and a hint of liquorice. All ingredients, including essential oils from lemon and bitter orange peels, pomegranate, herbs and fruits, are selected with care and infused with pure alcohol.
Mixed with water to bring it to the right alcohol content, it is then filtered and mixed with additional natural ingredients such as sugar, alcohol, burnt sugar and water. The product is then left inside oak barrique barrels in a cellar for 18 months until all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
A wait that is nothing but worth.
