What is "Concerto" liquor?

The "Concerto" liqueur is produced in the Amalfi Coast, in the province of Salerno, mainly in the villages of sunsets and Maiori. His invention was attributed to the monks of the convent of St. Francis of sunsets who made a "concert" of 15 herbs and spices to create this liqueur.

Among the herbs used are: licorice, fennel, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, Alpine Star and mint…

Preparation

You choose carefully the herbs that are then put to macerate for forty days in alcohol. After this time, the infusion is filtered and enriched with a syrup made with: water, coffee and barley and minced, sugar, orange and lemon peels.

At the end of the preparation, the liquid is bottled and left to stand for at least two months before being consumed.

For the most curious, there are no precise doses of herbs to use to create the "Concerto", but in small artisan workshops present in the Amalfi Coast you can buy the basic mixture already ready to make the infusion.

The final gradation is about 30 °.
