Will you take a little aperitif from the country?

Before lunch or when the evening comes, we can start to take an aperitif, nothing will prevent us from refreshing ourselves by these summer heats! And it falls rather well, it turns out that in Corsica the aperitif is a moment of relaxation and conviviality very appreciated, often accompanied by charcuterie and cheese. And I'm sure! Whether you are Corsican, German, Italian, Dutch or English, who does not like to have a drink with friends or family? We will therefore find the different Cape Corsica and liqueurs of our island of beauty without delay.

The Cap Corse L.N. Mattei, an emblematic aperitif!

Elaborated in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei, the Cap Corse (white or red) is an aperitif aged in oak barrels based on Capicursu Muscat, macerated oranges, maquis plants and quinquina. This Corsican alcohol sold all over the world and found itself in all the bars, we found a lot of derivatives (ashtrays, card games, jug...). It was only 29 years later, in 1901, that Cap Corse Damiani made its appearance, elaborated by Simon Damiani. Very quickly, he launches the first pastis Corsican: pasties Dami, then a few years later, cédrat liqueurs, Myrtle liqueurs, chestnut liqueurs... Etc. All remarkably delicious.

Our Corsican liqueurs from the Orsini domain

Born from a handmade manufacture in Calenzana in Haute Corse, the Orsini liqueurs are derived from very old recipes, elaborated with several varieties of fruits and berries, their flavours are indisputable. The Domaine Orsini won 4 medals at the General agricultural competition Paris 2018.

    Corsica myrtle liqueur

    A little myrtle? Please don't say no! Now that you're here, you'll have a little digestive all the same! Yes, welcome to Corsica, where myrtle liqueur is in the spotlight at the end of a meal. More than a tradition, myrtle liqueur is one of the essentials of the digestives of Corsican tables. It is a liqueur with fruity and fragrant aromas that ends with an astringent note at the end of the mouth. It is usually drunk fresh or icy, as a digestive or as an aperitif.

    The myrtle liqueur from the Orsini estate

    Very fruity, authentic and delicate, the myrtle liqueur of the Orsini domain surprises with its incomparable taste. Made from myrtle berries picked on the hillsides of Calenzana (Corsica), it is crafted from ancient recipes that are as original as ever. The Corse Orsini myrtle liqueur is therefore the result of the quality of a land, a passion and a tradition... and a long work of maceration. The estate has already received several medals at the Paris agricultural competition and is now one of the best producers of Corsican wines and liqueurs.

    A family liqueur

    Myrtle liqueur is a long-standing tradition in Corsica. Since the 19th century, Corsican families have been developing their own myrtle liqueur for their personal consumption, hence the variety of techniques used. However, the ingredients remain the same, water, brandy in which the berries were macerated by adding sugar and/or honey.

     

    Myrtle is a shrub common in Mediterranean regions, its berries are purple and its leaves have a smell that resembles rosemary, perfect for flavoring dishes.
