Italy is not only and simply known for her fine wines, but also for a plethora of liqueurs and spirits we enjoy at times as an aperitivo, at times as an after-dinner digestive. Often, they become also important ingredients for some of our favorite desserts.
Served either as a pre-dinner aperitif or as a post-meal digestive, Italian liquors have a hallowed place in the country’s culture and cuisine. Many types of liquors are based on age-old recipes that people once made in their homes, using the ingredients on hand. These days, plenty of large firms produce liquors for consumption at domestically and abroad, but it’s still possible to discover little-known jewels created in small, private distilleries across the country.
