Founded in the late 1800’s, four generations of the Quaglia family have guided the business through more than a century of artisan production, modernising it where needed whilst cherishing the older, traditional methods of distilling. The distillery was established just after the Unification of Italy in 1871 between Monferrato and the hills towards Turin.
Antica Distilleria Quaglia Liquore di Assenzio Bianco
This colourless assenzio offers notes of green anise in abundance. Medicinal and floral notes provide a unique and delightful layer to the intensity of the anise. The assenzio is very powerful on the palate and has a wonderful savoury complexity which immediately takes over with its strength and elegance and shows off some intense aromas of angelica, green anise and zedoary with a harmonious symphony of flowers and spices.
It is produced through maceration, followed by distillation of all the engredients such as mint, coriander, chamomile, angelica, lemon balm, fennel seeds, hyssop and roman wormwood.
