Elixir 3 Fiori

The Elixir 3 Fiori is inspired by some notes found in an old dusty book by Ernest Hemingway, entitled “Death in the Afternoon”.

Rediscovered in an abandoned cellar on the Sacro Monte di Varese, the book is a classic by Ernest and tells of traditions and ceremonies of bullfighting (corrida) in Spain during his time.

In those few lines, on that crumpled and yellowed sheet of paper, were listed some ingredients, flowers, and herbs, which seemed to be the skeleton of a recipe for a highly fragrant liqueur.

The three main flowers, the most abundant ones, were typical of Campo dei Fiori: Dandelion, Elderflower, and Artemisia.The latter known precisely for the preparation of Absinthe.

The fourth ingredient that makes this bitter unique is Laurel, in very small quantities and known to the most discerning palates.

From this ancient recipe was born the idea of ​​creating the Elixir 3 Fiori, the bitter of Campo dei Fiori, a liqueur to sip at the end of a meal or mixed as Hemingway did in his afternoons of madness with the original Absinthe.
