Basil, sage and chinotto because of its local raw materials, Basanotto is the liqueur of Liguria.

Basanotto can be enjoyed cold with ice or can be the special ingredient to recreate your favourite cocktails, giving them a personal touch: for example, you can choose it to make a mojito or daiquiri.

It is a drink with fresh, delicate and velvety flavours, with an excellent balance between the citrusiness of Savona chinotto and the herbaceous scents of Genoese basil and sage (which has always been one of the most traditional herbs of the Ligurian territory used in cooking). Typical raw materials of the highest quality, at the service of those who like to drink well and locally. Basanotto is a young liqueur that has already become a classic.

Basanotto is a typical Ligurian liqueur because it is made with excellent local raw materials such as Savona chinotto (Slow Food presidium) and Genoese basil PDO. It is a young liqueur, which was introduced only a few years ago, in 2021, but which has already become a classic and has immediately become part of the local traditional imagination. Because even though Ligurian liqueurs made with local products already existed, one was missing that would bring together the main ones, the symbols known even outside the region.

What Basanotto is and how it is made

Basanotto is produced by macerating Genoese PDO basil, Savona chinotto, sage, lemon peel, mint and cane sugar in a mixture of mineral water from Fonte Bauda di Calizzano and organic wheat alcohol. These ingredients were all selected after careful research and nothing was left to chance: for example, importance was also given to the water - which comes from Fonte Bauda di Calizzano, one of the last remaining sources in Liguria - because the quality of the water makes all the difference in the success of a liqueur.

This has resulted in a bouquet of scents and flavours that recreate, perfectly and naturally, the essence of Ligurian aromatics between citrus and herbaceous. The gastronomic tradition of Liguria is historically characterised by the cultivation of citrus fruits and the harvesting of aromatic herbs: in the former case, especially in the western part of the region, the cultivation of oranges, citrons, lemons and chinottos was one of the first sources of income for the Republic of Genoa; and herbs (both wild and cultivated) were also the daily food of the population of the time, both as a basic ingredient and as a 'flavouring'.

How to drink Basanotto. Advice on how best to enjoy it

Basanotto can be served as a classic liqueur, straight with ice (either before or after dinner) but it is also ideal for making cocktails, using it as a base to reinvent your aperitifs. It is a very perfumed liqueur, whose precious and pleasant aromaticity is still intact on the palate, with an excellent taste-olfactory correspondence. To start getting to know it, you can also try it just mixed with prosecco or tonic, and then use it in more elaborate cocktails, for example:

8/10 basil leaves, 45ml Basanotto, 15ml white rum, 20ml lime, 2 teaspoons sugar, feel of soda.

30ml Basanotto, 30ml white rum, 20ml lime, 10ml sugar syrup.

45ml Basanotto, 15ml tequila, 20ml lime, salt crust.

30ml vodka, 30ml Basanotto, 20ml lemon, 15ml sugar syrup, 10ml albumin.

40ml Basanotto, 20ml gin, 20ml lemon, 10ml sugar syrup, feel of tonic.
