Sambuca Secolare, Caffo

The history of the Caffo family business dates back to the end of the 19th century, when Giuseppe Caffo, the Master Distiller, class of 1865, began distilling pomace on the side of volcanic Mt. Etna. After years of experience trading and managing distilleries, his dream became reality when in 1915 he bought and old distillery in Santa Venerina, Sicily. He fully dedicated himself to his passion and passed his knowledge along to his children. Giuseppe’s son, Sebastiano Caffo, soon became a Master Distiller himself, and together they founded the company ‘Fratelli Caffo’ with Sebastiano’s brother, Santo Caffo. Initially, Caffo produced a small range of spirits distilled from wine, however the Caffo distillery gradually began producing and earning recognition for their fruit and herbal liqueurs and classic Italian spirits such as Amaro, Limoncino, Amaretto, Sambuca, and aged Grappa.

Tasting Notes

Made with the finest Calabrian Elderflower to reveal an aromatic anise & licorice flavor. The taste lingers, leaving a tingling sensation on the palate that is bursting with flavor. Fruitier and higher in alcohol than its cousin Anisette, this Sambuca is still 100% natural with no color or flavor added.
