Dumante Verdenoce is a pistachio liqueur hand-crafted in southern Italy in a tradition fine-tuned over many centuries. This ultra premium liqueur is made in small batches from the best pistachios in Italy, whose groves are located on the slopes of Mt. Etna in Sicily. It is carefully created through the combination of slowly-steeped natural pistachio infusion with fine artisan spirits and natural ingredients.
