The exact recipe of Sprizzato is a closely guarded Priante family secret. The base of the liquid is a precise blend of sweet oranges from Sicily and bitter citrus fruit from Curaçao.
During the distillation process, natural herbs and roots like gentian and anise sourced from the local mountains are added to give Sprizzato its distinctive aromatic taste. The final touch to finish its well-rounded, harmonious flavour is an infusion of rhubarb from the heart of Asia. The result – a bitter-sweet, orange-infused libation that sparkles with Italian sunshine in every drop.
