LA SPINOSA (blackthorn liqueur)
We collect the small blue fruits to give life to this traditional liqueur with a pungent and decisive taste.
the blackthorn, "Prunus Spinosa", is a spontaneous shrub that forms impenetrable hedges. The long thorns of the shrub provide protection for many animals, including the Porcupine - the "Spiny" - in the Umbrian dialect.
The Monte Mascarano farm was born in 2008 as a redevelopment project for a small abandoned land.
We have been producing Saffron since 2008 when we reintroduced the first cultivation of the territory in Todi.
We cultivate and transform small autochthonous spontaneous fruits by harvesting them after ripening, in a scalar way. Our preserves are thus processed entirely by hand and in small batches in order to obtain high quality natural products without the addition of preservatives, thickeners or synthetic dyes.
