Don’t say anise if you don’t add the word “Rosati”
“There is the anise and… there is the anise of Castignano”. Yes, this little village surrounded by the hills of Marche — a beautiful region just in the middle of Italy — is the baby cot of the “Pimpinella Asinum”, one of the best anises in the world. Between the breeze of the Adriatic sea and the cold wind of the Appennino mountains of the Sibillini national park, in 1850, Umberto Rosati, a famous pharmacist and a Nobleman, created one of the finest alcoholic drinks made with anise in Italy “Anisetta Rosati”.
This product crossed the centuries until our times, bringing from the past all the flavours and the memories of times made of herbs, wild hillside fields and farmer knowledge. In the 1877, the newspaper said louder “Anisetta Rosati, best digestive drink with low sugar and high flavours”, maybe there are some good reasons if a drink is still alive for a long time: let’s discover it!
