LEARDINI LIQUORI, an artisan workshop in which the liqueurs are made using the methods of the Benedictine monks. These distillates are out of the ordinary, as they are used to make herbs mixed then in the old bronze mortar. They contain no dyes or preservatives, they are totally banned from Leardini products.
In Affile, in an intertwining of secular alleys, stands the Leardini artisan distillery that since 1958 makes unique bitters with the methods of the Benedictine monks. A liqueur tradition that expertly works the herbs in the ancient bronze mortar. An instrument, the bronze mortar, which appears to be the most historically used in which the herbs of these precious liqueurs are crushed, crushed and mixed. This tool allows the odorous ingredients to maintain the intensity of their aromas as well as the beneficial effects, then transposed into the Ariminum, Barruell, Zethus and Eremus.
And it is in this ancient village just outside Rome, where Mauro Leardini, heir of the family tradition, works. Here are the foundations of the philosophy of a craft workshop with ancient flavors, where wisdom and nature reign. An inseparable combination of silence and time. First of all comes the silence: a value extinguished by a reboating world. A virtue that protects and allows the substance to mature as well as transform flavors as they once were. Then time arrives. A precious accomplice, which slides slowly and passes inexorably, but which then leads to the tasting of these quite uncommon distillates. A precious collection of liqueurs, bitters and distillates where to meet unique and authentic flavors, as their prerogative is to be without preservatives and dyes.
