Bitter Nepeta

Scent of Sicily

The project Nepeta was born in Syracuse in 2017 from the will of Federico and Andrea. The two cousins decided to engage in the recovery of a Sicilian herb unknown to most through the production of an Amaro first and then of chocolate: the Nepitella. 
The Catmint (Calamintha Nepèta) is a perennial aromatic plant, similar to mint in the aroma, which grows above five hundred meters of altitude on the rocky plateaus of the Iblei Mountains between Palazzolo Acreide and the Val di Noto.

The bottles, of French manufacture, recall the ancient cruets of apothecaries, the contrasting label has a minimal and fresh graphic that refers to the clean taste of Bitter Nepeta.

This unique Sicilian Bitter it boasts very pleasant notes of wild mint at the first sip which then transform into a slightly bitter persistence given by the peel of the Syracuse lemon PGI and has a herbaceous aftertaste thanks to the Sicilian wild herbs.
