Dragoncello Liqueur, Vicario

Dragoncello Liqueur, Vicario

Renato Vicario and Janette Wesley own and operate two organic farms, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean: in his native Piedmont, and in her native South Carolina. The majority of ingredients used to create Vicario’s liqueurs are grown on their own farms. Steeped in regional, mythical, and historical traditions, Vicario Liqueurs are made with the same methods which have been employed for centuries. Minimal filtration and quality ingredients ensure that these delightful spirits are among the most expressive examples in the world.

Tasting Notes

Harvested by hand, from Moon Hare Gardens in Greer, SC, their estate grown herb Artemisia dracunculus, gives the name to Dragoncello (literally Little Dragon). The herb, known to many as French Tarragon, has been cultivated from Ancient Greeks to Thomas Jefferson as it was historically known for its healing properties for the stomach and liver.  This exotic liqueur speaks of traces of anise and licorice, scented and aromatic baking spices, and of course, tarragon!
