The Colazingari Distillery, Antica Fabrrica Liquori Colazingari, was founded in the Scurano district of Alatri, one of the oldest towns in Eastern Lazio, almost 200 years ago in 1830. Its recipes have passed through family generations, imbuing their preparation of cold infusion and spirit maturation with two centuries of experience. As a result, we’re privileged to introduce you to liqueurs characterised by a level of refinement and depth of flavour rarely found outside of the headquarters of the Colazingari distillery – which is still found in Alatri.

Most lauded among their product range is the Colazingari Sambuca Fina, the creation date of which has been lost to the mists of time. Its recipe has been gradually improved over time, alongside a sustained commitment to respect for every stage of production, producing a Sambuca made from anise, elderberry, star anise and liquorice. While Sambuca represents a staple of Italian life, the quality of Colazingari’s is such that its best enjoyed in isolation, rather than added to coffee or accompanied by an espresso bean as is custom. Its complexity holds its own in simplicity and provides a sensory experience that is confusing, thought-provoking, exciting and wholly satisfying – all at once. Sweet and dry, delicate and strong, fragrant but not intrusive – the Colazingari Sambuca is a prime example of what this producer is capable of and it’s truly unique.
