For over 140 years, the Meletti family have been producing their famous Anisetta liqueur from their own distillate and locally grown star anise. Ascoli Piceno’s combo of Mediterranean climate and clayey soil are perfect for growing fine spices, and the anise has been part of the scenery for centuries. The family use much the same methods as were originally practiced, meaning a liqueur that is far from a mass produced product. Each of the elements are of the highest quality, and the family themselves are a pleasure to deal with. These are timeless, and find many uses in recipes and cocktails, as well as behind a bar.
Meletti Amaro is made from a unique, proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals. Amaro is amber in colour and has a herbal aroma and slightly bitter taste. Meletti Amaro is a delightfully aromatic liqueur that is excellent after a meal as an aid to digestion.
