Sambuca is an Italian liqueur made with anise stars and this Sambuca follows an old recipe passed down from generation to generation prepared at the Morelli distillery in Tuscany, near Pisa, based on just four high quality ingredients, premium star anise, neutral spirit, sugar and pure water, without any artificial flavour. This Sambuca has an alcohol content of 40%, many of the commercial sambuca have a much lower alcohol content.
