The process begins with the selection of the finest brandies, ranging from 3 to 10 years old. The Master Blender then folds the brandy into a blend of natural sugar and fine spirits before adding the crowning touch of soft citrus and vanilla essences. The result is the smooth, complex taste of Tuaca that delivers an intriguingly spicy fruit-based flavor with subtle hints of hazelnut, coconut and cocoa.
Tuaca is a striking blend of vanilla, distilled essences of Mediterranean citrus fruits and rich brandies. The original TUACA recipe was created more than 500 years ago, during the Italian Renaissance. Lorenzo de Medici, or Lorenzo the Magnificent as he was known, ruled Florence, Italy during this time. He assumed this responsibility from his father at the age of 20 and unlike many of his contemporaries, who favored war and bloodshed, Lorenzo respected the arts. He became a generous benefactor to the great artists of the period including Michelangelo, da Vinci and Botticelli.
