Antica Sambuca is a brand of Italian liqueur known for its distinctive anise flavor. Sambuca is a traditional Italian liqueur that originated in the late 19th century and has gained popularity worldwide. Antica Sambuca is one of the leading brands in the market, renowned for its high quality and craftsmanship.

Sambuca is typically made from a combination of distilled alcohol, essential oils derived from star anise, and other natural flavorings. The production process involves macerating the star anise seeds and other botanicals in alcohol, followed by distillation to extract the flavors. The resulting liquid is then sweetened with sugar and sometimes colored with natural ingredients.

Antica Sambuca is known for its smooth and balanced taste. It has a distinct anise flavor that is both sweet and aromatic, with hints of licorice. The liqueur is often enjoyed as a digestif or an accompaniment to coffee. It is commonly served neat, chilled, or with a few coffee beans floating on top for added aroma.

One of the unique features of Antica Sambuca is the presence of the “l’Attimo” (the moment) ritual. This involves setting the drink on fire briefly, allowing the flames to caramelize the sugar and enhance the aromatic qualities before extinguishing it and enjoying the drink. It is a visually captivating experience often performed in bars and restaurants.

In addition to the classic clear Sambuca, Antica Sambuca offers a range of flavored variations, including black liquorice, apple, raspberry, and vanilla. These flavored options provide a diverse range of taste profiles, catering to different preferences.

Antica Sambuca is often used as an ingredient in cocktails, such as the popular Sambuca shot or the Sambuca Espresso Martini. It can also be enjoyed as a versatile spirit for mixology experiments, allowing for creativity in crafting unique drinks.

As with any alcoholic beverage, it’s important to consume Antica Sambuca in moderation. The alcohol content can vary, typically ranging between 38% to 42% alcohol by volume (ABV).

Overall, Antica Sambuca is a renowned brand of Italian liqueur known for its high-quality anise flavor and versatility in cocktails. Whether enjoyed neat, as a shot, or as a cocktail ingredient, it provides a unique and flavorful experience for those who appreciate the taste of anise.

    Love it! Antica Sambuca is definitely one of the best on the market. It's well-flavoured, smooth, and has a nice punch without being too harsh. Slightly on the sweet side, but delicious!

    A bit tricky to find in our local shops. It's really tasty, but you can't have too many as it's very sweet. Chill the bottle and use a shot glass from the freezer. We used to have these as spritzers with lemonade. I'll definitely be buying this one again.
