Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto is a blend of bergamot peel, Cedro lemons, chamomile, lavender, gentian, yellow roses and Melissa balm. An aromatic and lightly spicy liqueur which balances honeyed sweetness with rooty bitterness.

Italicus is lightly citrus on the nose with hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, fresh tones of ripe citrus fruits are balanced with a light bitter and floral spice before giving way to a complex and long lasting finish.

Country Of Origin: Italy

Capitalising on the worldwide trend of aperitivo, The UK’s leading authority in Italian spirits, Giuseppe Gallo, orchestrated the global revival of Rosolio with the launch of his brand new liquid, Italicus – a modern take on this forgotten category. Capturing the Italian spirit whilst remaining faithful to the historic origins of Rosolio, the original Italian aperitivo once enjoyed by the King of Savoy, Italicus has been in development for almost a year and is masterfully created using a recipe which dates back to the late 1800s.

So popular was Rosolio in the 19th Century that each of Italy’s regions had their own distinctive variations - enjoyed as the aperitivo of the people. Championing the humble bergamot fruit, Italicus is produced at a family-owned distillery established in 1906 in Moncalieri, Torino. Bergamot from the UNESCO-protected area in the Calabrian region and cedro from Sicilia are infused in cold water to release their essential oils, in a time honoured process called Sfumatura, before being blended with Italian neutral grain spirit. A delicate combination of Roman chamomile from Lazio, lavender, gentian, yellow roses and melissa balm from Northern Italy are then macerated together for several days before being married with the bergamot and cedro essential oils to create the final liquid.
