Luxardo Sambuca dei Cesari is a strong, sweet liqueur made by extracting the essential oil by steam distillation from star anise seeds dissolved in pure alcohol. Combine this with a concentrated solution of sugar and other natural flavors. The resulting product is characterized by an intense aroma and balanced spiciness, with a long lingering anise flavor in the mouth. Native to China, the anise plant has been revered since ancient times for its therapeutic properties and has been hugely popular along the Mediterranean coast for centuries.
In these regions, it has become an essential part of preparing traditional dishes and desserts.
