More about Strega ... Italian for "witch, this old school herbal liqueur has accents of saffron, mint and juniper. Like most herbal liqueurs, strega is made from a secret combination of 70 or so herbs from all corners of the globe, that are infused into a base distillate. 

What combination of herbs makes Strega stand out? While some of them come from Italy, such as: Ceylon cinnamon, Florentine iris, Italian Apennine juniper, Samnite mint, perhaps the highlight (no pun intended) is its yellow color, which comes from the addition of saffron to the infusion.  Like many great liqueurs, Strega is a 100% natural product with no artificial colors or flavors. The final distillate is also aged in ash barrels before bottling.

Product Origin; Italy

Producer; Guiseppe Albern

Closure; Screw cap

Size Guide; 70cl

Alcohol %; 40 abv, 80 Proof (Proof is one half the percent. So 120 proof alcohol is 60%. Now if you were wondering why the Americans use this system, you need to look back at prohibition. Normally when authorities wanted to determine if a liquid was alcohol they would use a flame test. Alcohol solutions typically ignite at around 50% alcohol so 50% became 100% proof that a liquid was alcoholic.

Tasting Notes: Mint, Fennel, saffron, honey and a slight almost inky scent on the nose. The palate has flavors of mint, anise, juniper, fennel, among other herbs as well as sugar followed by a touch of heat from the alcohol. The finish leaves a lingering honey tinged saffron and juniper flavor on your tongue. Light in body.

Is Strega like chartreuse? Strega has a much lighter flavor and body then Yellow Chartreuse. Being lighter in proof its also less in your face with a more delicate flavor profile.
