Frangelico is a brand with a strong personality and an interesting background that makes it an authentic and refined liquor.
According to the legend, its origins date back more than 300 years to the presence of Christian monks living in the hills of the Piedmont region of northern Italy.
Their skills in fine food and drinks included the art of distilling, especially the use of the wild hazelnuts and other precious ingredients to create liquor recipes such as the one on which Frangelico is based today.
Its name is also part of the same local legend – an abbreviation of Fra’ Angelico, a hermit monk believed to have inhabited the magnificent Piedmont hills during the 18th century.
