Frangelico is an Italian liqueur made from wild hazelnuts, herbs and berries.
Local Piedmont hazelnuts are harvested, shelled, toasted and crushed. They are then infused in a solution of alcohol and water.
The hazelnut infusion is distilled to produce a natural hazelnut distillate.
The hazelnut distillate is blended with extract and distillates from cocoa seeds, vanilla berries, and other flavouring preparations to create the Frangelico concentrate.
The concentrate is blended with pure alcohol, sugar and water to achieve the required bottling strength. It is then laid down in vats for 6-8 weeks to allow the blend to marry together and mellow.
