Mirto Bianco is a matter of tradition, talent, passion and imagination.
Great intuitions often arise by chance. This was also the case for this precious liqueur. One day, much like any other, Silvio Carta’s wife tried to infuse some myrtle leaves left over from the meat processing in the kitchen. She soaked them in the Vernaccia spirit – which had already been produced by the family for some time – keeping the mixture for about two months, after which she separated the liquid from the leaves. She then added a syrup made of water and sugar.
Thus Mirto Bianco was born. The colour is white with green-yellowish tinges and has a strong balsamic scent, with an intense flavour of myrtle flowers and a very delicate and savoury taste.
To this day, Elio produces Mirto Bianco as per family tradition.
