Frangelico is a traditional hazelnut liqueur that can be enjoyed neat, with ice, with coffee or in a variety of fashionable cocktails. Produced in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, its origins date back over 300 years with the presence of early Christian monks living in the hills of the area. Their skills in fine food and drink would have included the art of distillation, especially the use of wild hazelnuts and other local ingredients to create a liqueur on which Frangelico is still based today. His name is also part of the same local legend: an abbreviation of Fra. Angelico, a hermit monk believed to have inhabited magnificent Piedmont hills during the seventeenth century. The Frangelico bottle is an immediate reminder of its distinctive history. Shaped similar to a monk's habit, with a traditional rope belt around his waist, is a guarantee of authenticity and quality that links the past with the present. Taste Frangelico and the whole story takes shape. Wonderful golden wild hazelnuts, found only in northern Italy, combined with cocoa, vanilla berries and a host of other natural flavors that make up this complex recipe.
