Some of the city’s top bars including The Dead Rabbit, PDT, The NoMad Hotel, Dante are mixing things with a brand new Italian liqueur.
The brainchild of bartender and Italian spirits expert Giuseppe Gallo, Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto promises to capture “Italy’s art, architecture and poetry in liquid form” — talk about ambition!
Made from bergamot oranges from a protected geographical area in Calabria, Sicilian citrons and botanicals, Italicus marries a classic 19th-century recipe for Rosolio with the Gallo family’s own Rosolio (an Italian liqueur derived from rose petals) making traditions to create this modern spirit.
“My goal was to create the quintessential expression of what makes Italy the most remarkable and unforgettable country in the world for so many people by bottling the essence of La Bella Italia,” says Gallo. “I am delighted to bring ITALICUS Rosolio to the U.S. market.”
