Flavoured Grappa

Poli Liquirizia

Grappa with liquorice root infusion

Its very name, Glycyrrhiza glabra,  meaning “sweet root”, points to the properties of this plant.

Pier Andrea Mattioli, a 16th century physician, reported that licorice was used as a miraculous medicament in ancient Egypt and quotes Theophrastus, according to whom “The root, chewed fresh, not only quenches thirst but delays hunger, keeping one’s strength for several days”.
