Inspired by a 1800s recipe for Planter's Punch that included ambergris and observing that most liqueurs have a one-dimensional flavour profile, bartending elder statesman Salvatore Calabrese sought to create a liqueur that was floral, citrus and minty, the result being Acqua Bianca.

To make his dream liqueur a reality, Salvatore "The Maestro" Calabrese teamed up with De Kuyper Royal Distillers who launched Acqua Bianca in February 2020.

Acqua Bianca is made using all-natural ingredients, including lemon verbena, bergamot from Calabria, peppermint and rose, "bound with essence of ambergris." For a liqueur, Acqua Bianca has a very low sugar content of just 150 grams of sugar per litre.

Acqua Bianca's packaging resembles a book, with the label as the spine and this was designed by Salvatore's daughter, Francesca Calabrese and her design agency Five Foot Eight.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 07/02/2020

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Incredibly aromatic with peppermint, zesty bergamot oils, floral rose and honeysuckle.

Taste:

Peppermint freshness with an almost creamy mouthfeel, floral flavours and light cleansing citrusy acidity.

Aftertaste:

Long minty fresh finish with lingering rose and citrus zest.

Overall:

Wonderfully aromatic, Acqua Bianca has notes of mint, rose and citrus and can be used in place of a traditional white crème de menthe to add more complexity to a cocktail rather than one-dimensional mint.
