Founded in Ghemme, Piemonte (Northern Italy) in 1951 by Luigi Francoli, the Francoli Distillery has a rich history of grappa production. The Francoli Family has been running the Distillery for over 5 generations. The mission of the Company is the production and distribution of their Grappa (through the historial brand of Luigi Francoli), liqueurs, spirits, and fruit syrups. Opal Nera, the original black sambuca, was created by the Francoli Distillery in 1989 and since its launch, Opal Nera's success has spread to over 30 countries around the world. In many markets, not only is Opal Nera the number one selling black sambuca, but the number one Sambuca !

Opal Nera is a premium black sambuca liqueur made from all natural ingredients including - Star Anise, Green Anise Elderberries, Rare variety of Lemon and Water drawn from a local water source created by Leonardo da Vinci. Opal Nera gets its liquorice black colouring from the skins of the elderberry plant's black berries, a plant which grows wild throughout Italy. All the ingredients come from Italy with the exception of the star anise, which comes from China. Not surprisingly, Opal Nera's taste is strong on anise and lemon, and it has a very balanced, smooth finish.

Tasting notes: Deep purple - black in colour, the nose hints of spice and licquorice. The texture is, as one would expect, rich, plush and thick. Fat, broad mouthfeel with excellent concentration of flavours displaying licqorice and blueberry. Clean, deep finish. Recommended as an aperitif or after dinner drink with a twist of lemon, but more commonly imbibed straight from a shot glass. Highly recommended.
