Don Ciccio & Figli unveils new bottle

Washington DC based distillery Don Ciccio & Figli has relaunched Donna Rosa Rabarbaro, a rhubard liqueur in an aperitivo style.

The new bottles features a redesigned label of Donna Rosa with a nod to the history of witchcraft. Donna Rosa is claimed to have lived amongst a colony of witches under the fjord of the Amalfi Coast.

Donna Rosa is based on an Italian recipe from 1896, with a nod to the original Don Ciccio & Figli Distillery, which produced liqueurs on Italy’s Amalfi Coast for nearly a century.

Today, this recipe is being resurrected in the US by fourth generation family owner Francesco Amodeo who opened the Washington, DC distillery in 2012.

Donna Rosa is an aperitivo based on an infusion of three types of rhubarb roots from around the world, honeysuckle, rose petals from California and 17  botanicals including rose, rhubarb, chamomile, bitter orange and quassia. It is aged in French Oak Barrels for 12 months, and rests at 20% ABV. RRP is $35.99.
