Sassolino

Sassolino is a star anise-flavored liqueur from Italy.

History

Sassolino first appeared in 1804 when a Swiss named Bazzingher from the Graubünden Canton, together with a number of fellow countrymen, most of whom were grocers or spice sellers, moved to "Sassuolo", "Modena" and subsequently began producing an aniseed flavored liqueur. The company then changed hands a number of times before the Stampa family acquired it and put the liqueur into mass production.

The liqueur is 40% vol. It is sometimes known as "Sassolino di Modena"
