This clear Sambuca is made from the essential oils of star anise and elderberry, with an appropriate sweetness. Paolucci Black Sambuca uses the essential oils of licorice and Witch Elder Bush to impart its rich flavor, but with a somewhat with drier finish.
It was the year 1873 when Vincenzo Paolucci moved from the nearby region of Abruzzo to Sora in Ciociaria (Latium). This decision was motivated by the fact that in this new territory, the Liri Valley, rich in water and lush vegetation, nature offered many varieties of plants (gentian, etc.) necessary for his liquor preparation.
