In 1814, Giuseppe Casoni began distilling liqueurs in the small town of Finale Emilia, within the celebrated culinary region of Emilia-Romagna.
Aperitivo fans may note this product’s similarities to Aperol—the rosy-bright hue and the mild, bittersweet flavor. Made using local herbs, fruits and seeds, this delicate liqueur also features a floral note on the light, elegant finish.
Serve spritz-style—topped with Prosecco and a splash of soda water.
