Proof66 Notes

Averna Sambuca liqueur is an anise flavored (black licorice) spirit from Italy. It is made with 100% star anise meant to join "tradition and modernity."

Averna was founded by Salvatore Averna who is said to have gained the secret recipe of mixing an herbal elixir from an order of friars in 1859 leading to the founding of the company in 1868.

A much better sambuca than many out there. While not as complex as the other licorice version they produce -as a straight up version of sambuca I highly recommend it. Yes, it costs a bit more but worth it.

Recommended as an alternative to the syrup others call "sambuca."
