Tuaca 70cl Bottle
Tuaca 70cl Bottle

Tuaca (2-wa-ka), is an imported Italian Liqueur, with its unique blend of ingredients giving Tuaca its vanilla and citrus character, which contributes to its lightly sweet & smooth taste

Tuaca is an Italian spirit inspired by a recipe originally created for the ruler of Florence, Lorenzo de' Medici, in Renaissance Italy during the 15th century

Lorenzo was known as 'the Magnificent' for his love of all things great

He is credited to have kick-started the Renaissance era

The recipe was sadly lost when the Medici family fell from power but was the inspiration for two childhood friends from Tuscany - Gaetano Tuoni and Giorgio Canepa

In 1938, they opened their own distillery to fulfil their dream of distilling traditional Italian spirits

As a tribute to Lorenzo de' Medici, an image of a Brass etching from El Duomo Cathedral's Baptistry doors has been portrayed on the bottle

Michelangelo called these gates 'The Gates of Paradise'

The etching is based on the first mention of liquor in the Bible within Genesis

The crest that is cast into the present day bottle and represented on the label is the shield of Livorno, the birthplace of Tuaca

To this day, Tuaca is still hand crafted from all natural ingredients by the Tuoni & Canepa Distillery in Livorno, Tuscany

Tuaca is made from oak-aged Italian brandy, which is then infused with natural citrus fruit and sweet aromatics, most notably light vanilla

This gives Tuaca its complex taste profile and incredible versatility - making it the perfect ingredient for any number of cocktails or long drinks

Tuaca is also delicious neat over ice or as a chilled shot serve.
