Opal | Italy image

Opal Nera was created many years ago from a secret recipe by Francoli, a family company of distillers based in northern Italy.  The company, whose orgins go back several generations, create the world's first carbon-neutral distillery and have always been at the forefront of pioneering spirits.  Opal Nera was the original black Italian liqueur and rapidly achieved worldwide renown.  Opal Nera is now sold internationally and has become a quality benchmark to which may other similar liqueurs aspire, but never succeed to imitate.

The main ingredients in the production of Opal Nera are various spices such as star anise and green anise.  Many other natural ingredients are also used including elderflowers, elderberries, orange flowers, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and Sicilian lemons. All of the ingredients are infused and distilled separately.  Blended together they ensure the perfect balance and smoothness of Opal Nera.  Elderberries also play an important part in obtaining the liqueur's rich and uniquely deep purple colour.  Finally, the water used during the production process is sourced from a natural spirng located beneath nearby hills which are of ancient glacial origin.
