Opal Nera Sambuca Liqueur was created by the Italian Francoli family, and is considered to be the first black sambuca on the market. Opal Nera Sambuca Liqueur uses star anise and green anise as its main spices, but other natural ingredients are also used including elderflowers, elderberries, orange flowers, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and Sicilian lemons. Opal Nera Sambuca Liqueur can be enjoyed straight up, chilled with ice, in your favorite cocktail and as a frappe, bringing the dark secret to light.
