Unmistakable in its unique long tapered bottle, Galliano liqueur is named after Major Giuseppe Galliano, a member of the Italian Expeditionary Corps in the Italian-Abyssinian conflict of 1895-6, as a tribute to his heroic stand at the fort of Enda Jesus where he held out for forty four days before being ordered to surrender.
Galliano was traditionally made at Salara, fifteen miles north of Milan. Forty herbs, roots, flowers and other botanicals, including key ingredients like vanilla and anise comprise the recipe. Seven infusions, seven distillations, two blending stages and a six month marrying period are involved in the production. The taste of Galliano liqueur is set to change following a fine-tuning of the unique recipe and the launch of this new coffee-flavoured version – Galliano Ristretto.Alcohol Volume:
