Strega Liqueur is made by extracting the essences of about 70 different kinds of rare herbs and spices, coming from Europe, Central America and the East—and made by the Alberti’s from the raw ingredients. Its characteristic golden colour comes from the remarkable saffron distillate portion. Maturing in oak barrels allows the components of this secret recipe to mature and mellow together. This remarkable formula jealously guarded, has been handed on through five generations of Albertis. This is a craft, not industrial beverage; every ingredient is stored in a large room inside the factory, dried and readied to be made into Strega liqueur.
