Anisetta Meletti has got a very delicate taste and a special aroma that come from the quality of the aniseed (Pimpinella Anisum) carefully cultivated in certain areas of clay soil around Ascoli Piceno, favoured by the excellent conditions of the soil and the climate. In 1904 the distillery was built by the railway station in Ascoli Piceno. The anisette produced was aged in iron casks in many large cellars. Now, more than 140 years since it was produced, Anisetta Meletti Meletti is still produced with the systems developed and established by its founder. The most important point of the production is the alcohol distillation with aniseeds.
