A large, 1 litre bottling of this super popular hazelnut liqueur.
First launched in 1978, the liqueur is said to date back to the 17th century, and to have been first created by a hermitic monk named Father Angelico (Fr. Angelico for those playing along at home) who lived in the hills of Piedmont, in northern Italy.
Whilst it is difficult to verify the existence of Father Angelico, it is likely that the monks of the time were producing hazelnut and herb distillate (strictly for medicinal purposes, of course).
The bottling itself delivers notes of creamy hazelnut, buttery biscuits, coffee, chocolate, mixed nuts, and faint citrus.
Instantly recognizable with its monk-shaped bottling (complete with cord-rope tie), this liqueur is necessary for all manner of nutty, dessert-style cocktails.
