The Beltion brand was born after the second world war when Giacomo Gianandrea began selling his production of almond milk. The name (and the milk) soon became popular throughout Southern Italy. Fast forward to 1995, when his children set up a modern operation with a view to extend the brand to a wider range of cordials and spirits from the classic Italian repertoire. These include Sambuca, Anice, Amaro and an unusual expression of a liqueur standard, 'Opera Beltion White Amaretto'.

Tasting note: Pours crystal clear and viscous in appearance, issuing semi sweet notes of fresh liquorice strap combined with a sharper star anise note. A thick, creamy entry continues into the plush mid palate featuring intense liquorice strap flavours with a gently warming spirit. Shows restrained sweetness. Finishes clean, light and fresh, with excellent persistence. 40% Alc./Vol.
