Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Hailing from Northern Italy, this tawny-orange liqueur is based on biscotti cookies. It has a remarkable pastry-like quality, from the rich roasted-almond aroma to the sweet, syrupy, almond-paste flavor flecked with fennel. Use to sweeten coffee, tiki drinks in place of orgeat syrup, or to add flavor to baked goods. - K.N.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011Finalist. Sensuously biscuity and almond paste-like aroma is lovely; flavor profile highlights include almond paste, buttered almond, cookie batter and confectioner's sugar; delicious. (Mar 2011)
These days biscotti come in many flavors but the traditional Italian biscotti often have a nut and anise flavor. Faretti Biscotti Famosi liqueur has a recipe based on nuts, fennel, citrus and caramel. The multilayered flavors mean that it can be paired with a wide variety of desserts or used in cream-based cocktails. The base of the liqueur is vodka and it is sweetened with beet sugar.
