The Puccini brand of liqueurs made by Toorak Distilleries in Holland has expanded to three with the addition of two new offerings. Puccini Graphite is a premium sambuca that adds hints of lavender, lemon balm and cardamom to the anise and liquorice base provided by its older sibling, the award-winning Puccini Crystal sambuca. The result is a smooth, ruby-coloured drink with a 38% abv and a price tag of £51.90 for a case of 6 x 50cl bottles. The second newcomer is the Puccini Limonino Lemon Liqueur, which requires at least 10 young Verdello lemons to fill one 50cl bottle of 27% abv liqueur. Limonino costs £45.35 for a case of six bottles.
