Antica Green Chilli Sambuca: A Fiery Twist on the Classic Liqueur

Liqueur lovers seeking a taste adventure, look no further than Antica Green Chilli Sambuca. This innovative spirit from the esteemed Italian brand Antica takes the familiar anise-infused base of traditional sambuca and infuses it with the fiery kick of green chilli peppers. The result? A complex and captivating spirit that delivers a delightful sweet and spicy interplay.

On the Nose:

The first impression of Antica Green Chilli Sambuca is undeniably aromatic. Anisa dominates the initial fragrance, offering the characteristic licorice and herbal notes that are the hallmark of sambuca. However, a hint of vegetal freshness peeks through, hinting at the green chilli lurking beneath the surface. As the aroma develops, subtle hints of spice emerge, building a subtle anticipation of the fiery encounter to come.

On the Palate:

The initial sip of Antica Green Chilli Sambuca presents a delightful surprise. A wave of sweetness washes over the tongue, reminiscent of aniseed candies and ripe fennel. This sweetness is quickly followed by a gentle warmth that speaks to the spirit's alcohol content (38% ABV). Then, the green chilli makes its dynamic entrance. A burst of zesty heat tingles on the mid-palate, leaving a pleasant tingle that lingers without overwhelming the other flavours.

The interplay between sweet and spicy is the defining characteristic of Antica Green Chilli Sambuca. The anise and herbal notes provide a comforting foundation, allowing the green chilli to showcase its fiery personality without overpowering the palate. As the flavours evolve, the sweetness softens slightly, revealing a touch of smokiness that adds depth and complexity to the experience.

The Finish:

The finish of Antica Green Chilli Sambuca is long and satisfying. The lingering warmth of the alcohol intertwines with the fading heat of the chilli, creating a pleasant tingling sensation. Hints of anise and fennel linger on the tongue, reminding you of the spirit's heritage while leaving a lasting impression of its unique fiery twist.

Serving Suggestions:

Antica Green Chilli Sambuca's versatility makes it a perfect addition to your drinks repertoire. Here are some exciting ways to enjoy this unique spirit:

  • Neat or on the Rocks: For the purists, Antica Green Chilli Sambuca shines when enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Served chilled, the spirit's sweetness and anise notes are accentuated, while the ice helps to temper the chilli heat slightly. This is a fantastic way to appreciate the full complexity of the flavour profile.
  • Flaming Sambuca Shot:  For the adventurous, the classic flaming sambuca shot takes on a fiery new dimension with Antica Green Chilli Sambuca. Simply pour a small amount of spirit into a shot glass, light a single coffee bean afloat on the surface, and let it caramelise for a moment. Blow out the flame and enjoy the shot – but be prepared for a thrilling combination of sweet, spicy, and smoky flavours!
  • Spicy Cocktails: Antica Green Chilli Sambuca adds a delightful kick to classic cocktails. Try substituting it for regular sambuca in a B52 for a fiery twist, or muddle a few fresh berries with Antica Green Chilli Sambuca for a unique take on a mojito.
  • Food Pairings:  Beyond cocktails, Antica Green Chilli Sambuca can also be a fantastic partner for food. Its sweet and spicy profile complements spicy dishes like curries and fajitas beautifully. Additionally, it can add a touch of intrigue to cheese plates, particularly alongside sharp cheeses like cheddar or gorgonzola.
