Opal Nera Black Sambuca 700ml
Opal Nera Black Sambuca is a premium black Sambuca liqueur made from all natural ingredients including – Star Anise, Green Anise Elderberries, Sicilian Lemons and water. Opal Nera gets its liquorice purple black colouring from the skins of the elderberry plant’s black berries, a plant which grows wild throughout Italy. Opal Nera’s taste is strong on anise and lemon, and it has a very balanced, smooth finish. It’s decadent and full on the palate, with rounded licorice and earthy, berry flavours. It’s finish is a sharp sugar snap tapering off to a lingering subtle spice finish.

The name “sambuca” originates from the Latin name of the elder tree – Sambucus nigra, growing in abundance in Northern Italy. Opal Nera is a premium Sambuca liqueur with an intriguing, fresh, and smooth profile, from all-natural ingredients. The original recipe includes star anise, green anise, the peel of Italian lemons, and water drawn from a local alpine water source originally created by Leonardo da Vinci. An infusion of elderberries, cloves, cinnamon, and black cumin is the secret to Opal Nera’s deep purple hue.
