Production Process: Valentino Esposito and Mario Anastasio, the duo behind Il Gusto di Amalfi, source their Mandarin 'Marzatico' oranges from organically-farmed groves on the seaside terraces of the Amalfi coast. The fruit is picked in season between January and April and peeled by hand. The peel is immediately macerated in pure grain alcohol for 3-4 days. No preservatives, coloring agents or stabilizers are added.
Tasting Notes: This is the purest expression of southern Italy's extraordinary mandarin oranges. The Mandarino liqueur is a great digestivo; drink cold, but not on the rocks. The bottle may need to be shaken occasionally to mix in the mandarin oils that rise to the top. Try a dash of it with good Prosecco, too.
