THE DIFFERENCE IN THE TYPICAL

The wild artichoke or “cardoon” (Cynara Cardunculus Sylvestris) also referred to as the “artichoke of Etna” or “cacucciuleddu spinusu catanisi” in dialect, is a plant which belongs to the Asteraceae family. It grows on it’s own in hilly areas around the volcanic soil of Mount Etna in Sicily. It is recognized for it’s extraordinary health virtues being rich in antioxidants, substances to keep the intestinal flora in equilibrium and is naturally purifying. For over half of the last century and appreciated since ancient times, the wild artichoke continues to be a presence on the tables of southern Italians, and to this day, is considered a delicacy in Mediterranean cuisine.

LA DIVERSITÁ NELLA TIPICITÁ Il Cardo selvatico (Cynara Cardunculus Sylvestris), detto “carciofino dell’Etna” o “cacucciuleddu spinusu catanisi” è una pianta appartenente alla famiglia delle Asteraceae e cresce spontaneamente nelle aree collinari intorno al vulcano Etna. Famoso per le sue straordinarie virtù: ricco di antiossidanti, di sostanze equilibranti per la flora batterica intestinale e di componenti naturali depurativi. Apprezzato fin dall’antichità e presente nelle tavole delle popolazioni del Sud Italia per oltre metà del secolo scorso, il cardo selvatico nel corso degli anni è diventato una prelibata rarità nella cucina mediterranea.

“On a summer afternoon, under the majestic shadow of Mount Etna, some small talk and an aperitif, the idea was born to produce and market specialized liquors. Angelo, having much experience as a harvester and connoisseur of wild plants, combined his knowledge with that of two young businessmen, Maurizio and Andrea. Driven by a passion to give value and recognition to Sicily’s treasures, the threesome embarked upon a venture to export a part of Sicilian culture. Thus was born Amarcardo.
Spirits distilled from the wild artichoke of Etna.”

Produced in Santa Venerina at the foot of Mount Etna in
Sicily’s oldest distillery.
Founded in 1865 by Sebastiano Giuffrida .
