  • Spirits Bresca Dorada Mirto Rosso di Sardegna

Bresca Dorada Mirto Rosso di Sardegna

Excl. tax

Spicy and sweet, with earthy herbal notes. Enjoy after dinner as a digestivo, or as a unique addition to cocktails — plays very well with bourbon or gin.

Wild myrtle bushes grow all over the island of Sardinia. Their berries are fruity in flavor but also distinctively spicy. Mirto is the classic liqueur and digestivo from Sardinia, made from an infusion of myrtle berries. Bresca Dorada’s Mirto berries are harvested by hand in the inland parts of the island, mostly from wild plants. The berries are macerated for at least three months, to give a slow and complete extraction of aromatic substances. The only additions are sugar, honey (up to 10% of the sweetener, more would give too much of a honey flavor), and water. The flavor is fruity, spicy, and very distinctive, not too sweet.
