Ischia Sapori Rucolino Amaro
Ischia is a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, located at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples, about 30 kilometres from the city of Naples.
Ischia Sapori is the island’s one and only liqueur factory and home to the famous Rucolino, made from the large leaf wild grown rocket. The recipe is, of course, a family secret, but we do know that in addition to rucola (rocket), citrus features in the mix, lightening the flavour. In style terms, it’s in the dark spectrum – not orange / tangerine / citrus like Montenegro or Nonino Amaro – it’s a dark Amaro, but at the same time, it’s not as heavy as Cynar, Averna or Rabarbaro either. It’s delicious, 30% alcohol and best served cold or on ice.
