ARTISANAL BLUEBERRY LIQUEUR (MIRTILLINO) - AZ. AGR. BABBO ELIO
During the sunny summer season many delicacies are offered us by the Emilian Apennine territory. Among these are the blueberries, from which a typical after meal liqueur is obtained, called “mirtillino” from the Italian name for blueberry (“mirtillo”). Semi-dense, dark purple in colour and characterized by fresh and fruity scents, it releases an aroma that reveals all its wild and genuine nature. Babbo Elio’s mirtillino is not only the perfect drink to end a meal on a sweet note but it is also the ideal liqueur to moisten desserts and prepare fruit cakes.
The labels on the ampoules of old pharmacies, yellowed by time, are the primary inspiration for the design created by Sara Goldoni, Babbo Elio’s granddaughter and partner of the homonymous farm. It is a direct reference to the dual nature of these ancient liqueurs, which, like magical elixirs, combine taste and beneficial properties.
