Product of: Italy
During World War II, American servicemen stationed in Livorno, Italy (a seaside resort on Tuscany's Mediterranean Coast) discovered Tuaca. On their return home they searched for the brand but were unable to find it – that was until the late 1950s when an astute importer brought Tuaca into the USA where it is now made (and owned). Tuaca was introduced to the UK in the mid-1990s.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 25/06/2012
Clear, golden amber with bright gold highlights.
Spiritous with vanilla, white chocolate covered raisons, coffee beans and faint mandarin peel.
Vanilla, caramel, white chocolate and mocha coffee with raisin brandy notes - reminiscent of tiramisu with more subtle hints of nutmeg, honey and orange.
Milk chocolate, cracked black pepper and vanilla.
Use when cocktail recipes call for Tuaca by name or state "caramel liqueur".
