Meletti Anisette

Meletti Anisette is one of Italy’s oldest liqueurs produced using Silvio Meletti’s original recipe from 1870. Naturally aromatic, anise seed from Le Marche is distilled in a bain marie, then blended with herbs for further distillation to attain intensified aromatics and a smooth palate. Aged in stainless steel tanks for 4-6 months, then fine filtered using wool, Meletti Anisette is an elegant digestivo that is enjoyable on its own or with coffee.

Among the best of its category, Meletti made its name experimenting with anise plants from numerous Italian provinces as far back as 1870, determining finally that the best quality anise grew on the Adriatic Coast directly east of Rome. The end result: a pungent aroma hinting at anise and fennel, and a mellow, sippable flavor that slowly unfurls fiery cinnamon, anise, Dutch licorice and a sweet-herbal hint of sarsaparilla.
