Opal Nera was created many years ago from a secret recipe by Francoli, a family company of distillers based in northern Italy who are well known for their Fernet digestivo.
Opal Nera was the original black Italian liqueur and rapidly achieved worldwide recognition. It has a smoother, tastier, with a lighter flavour than other Sambucas. They use elderberry skins to give a unique, rich black colour.
Opal Nera is now sold internationally and has become a quality benchmark to which many other similar liqueurs aspire, but never succeed to imitate.
