Liquore di Mirto
Gualco Distillery’s Liquore di Mirto is a product that by now has many years of history behind it. It was created in the 1980s through a partnership between Susanna Gualco and a wine producer in Sardinia, based in the Planargia plateau (near to Bosa in the province of Oristano).
Our way of making this liqueur involves a predominant use of the berries, as well as their leaves and twigs, to give a pleasant, slight bitterness to the liqueur. Only a moderate amount of sugar is used to make the whole thing light and digestive.
