In 1945, in Civitavecchia, Italy, Angelo Molinari created his Sambuca Molinari Extra. For the following fourteen years, his recipe was made only by artisans according to the traditional methods until the drink became so popular all over Italy that manufacturing plants had to be introduced in 1959 and 1964. Sambuca Molinari Extra became an Italian institution, popular with both celebrities and the public.
Sambuca Molinari Extra is a strong, anise-flavoured liqueur. This sweet concoction is made using a secret recipe that the family has not yet and will never reveal. What is known is that the recipe is based on the seeds of the star anise plant and uses sugar, herbs, and spices for additional flavour. The extra in the name of Molinari Sambuca Extra is in reference to the superiority of the sambuca, as it is made with extremely high standards of quality and accuracy.
The most well-known way to enjoy Sambuca Molinari Extra is "con la mosca" by adding an odd number of coffee beans. Pleasant and warm on the palate, this liqueur fills the mouth with the full, delicious flavour of anise. Transparent and crystal clear, it is often enjoyed as a digestive drink after meals or added to coffee, but it can also be enjoyed frozen, on the rocks, or any other way that you would like.
