The luscious flavors of Galliano L'Autentico stem from its crafted collection of 30 natural spices, herbs and extracts. This spice liqueur was first crafted in 1896 by a vintner named Arturo Vaccari from west Italy to commemorate a contemporary hero named Giuseppe Galliano, who defended Fort of Enda Jesus while outnumbered 40 to 1. Vaccari based his uniquely flavored tipple on a homemade botanical liqueur that many thought Galliano carried into battle with him.
This storied spirit became famous in the 1970s with the Harvey Wallbanger cocktail, which mixes Galliano L'Autentico liqueur with vodka and orange juice to create a fun spinoff of the ever-popular screwdriver. The drink's exotic ingredients and distillation process produce a distinctive golden hue and come together to deliver a heavy nose countered by a rich, well-rounded taste.
