When you open up a bottle of Averna, you open up a modern and vibrant world of Sicily, a multidimensional land built by its openness to a rich mix of people and cultures. Being Sicilian is not just Averna’s heritage; it’s in its contemporary expression and everyday ‘Carattere Siciliano’.
For millennia, a wide variety of cultures have existed and thrived in Sicily, made possible by the openness of the island to the passage of people visiting and falling in love with its charm. The result has created a dynamic and multi sensorial world, a vibrant and warm place, with the welcoming hospitality of Sicilian character at its heart.
Sicily is Averna’s homeland. Its legacy starts in 1868 with the story of a secret recipe created by Capuchin monks in Caltanissetta, Sicily, using a skilful mix of aromatic herbs, natural spices and roots, and essential oils of Sicilian bitter orange and lemons, and pomegranate peel.
Over a century later, Averna’s story marries its deep-rooted heritage with colourful modernity as a representation of the vibrancy of Sicily today. A Sicily that has no frontiers, that has welcomed influence and evolution, an island that offers a multi-cultural discovery at every turn; a Sicily that is open.
The vibrancy of Sicily is captured inside each bottle of Averna, where the distinctive aroma and unmistakable zest of Sicilian ingredients shine. Averna’s authentic taste is achieved by the unique infusion of essential oil from Sicilian bitter oranges and lemons and pomegranate peel.
The well rounded blend reflects the dynamism of its home- land, each sip unveiling a new multi sensorial dimension. As a Sicilian amaro full of authentic ‘Carattere Siciliano’, Averna is the ideal amaro to prolong and uplift moments of after-meal hospitality with added vibrancy when friends stay together around the ‘de-constructed table’ to create lasting moments of meaningful conviviality.
From it’s ingredients to expert craft and role in moments of meaningful conviviality, each dimension of Averna truly embodies Sicilian vibrancy and the warmth and openness of Sicily that exists today. Averna is your invitation to create lasting moments of meaningful conviviality with friends around the table and journey beyond the surface to unveil the unexpected and vibrant world of the authentic Sicilian amaro.
The first multi sensorial sip of the deep brown and red-golden liquid offers notes of Sicilian citrus, transporting you to the island. This is followed by the vibrant scents which can remind you of Mediterranean herbs such as myrtle, juniper, rosemary and sage to deliver a softly bitter yet velvety smooth taste. With a skilful blend of Sicilian ingredients that has remained a closely guarded secret since its creation, each sip of Averna opens up a new multi-sensorial experience and portrays the true vibrancy of its homelands.
Once the secret combination of Sicilian ingredients has been carefully selected, they undergo an innovative infusion and filtration period to form a rich, intensely aromatic liquid.
The infusion of Averna still takes place in Xiboli (Caltanissetta), where the founding father, Don Salvatore Averna, lived. Protecting this craftsmanship and heritage, Averna harmoniously joins tradition with modernity by expressing it through the vibrancy of Sicily today authentic, refined and multi sensorial.
Averna’s Sicilian authenticity makes it the ideal amaro to prolong moments of after meal hospitality with added vibrancy when friends stay together around the table to create lasting moments of conviviality. In its warming hospitality, Averna represents the contemporary world of Sicily to be discovered dynamic with an authenticity that is rooted in its ‘Carattere Siciliano’ thanks to its openness to a rich mix of cultures, people and experiences. Being Sicilian is not just Averna’s heritage; it’s an unexpected and vibrant way of life.
