    A classic Italian hazelnut liqueur that uses nuts from the Piedmont region - supposedly these are bigger and plumper than most, offering a slightly sweeter taste. Those hazelnuts are crushed and macerated in a base alcohol, which is then redistilled to create a hazelnut spirit. That spirit is then infused with extracts and distillates of roasted coffee beans, cacao pods, vanilla and a secret selection of herbs before a sugar/water solution adds sweetens and dilutes down to the required alcohol level.

    The bottle pays honour to Christian monks living in the region over 300 years ago, who - as many monks would - distilled spirits using local ingredients to create drinks for themselves and the local communities.

    Frangelico is said to be named after Fra' Angelico, a hermit monk who lived in the area in the 18th century.

    I'm not a great fan of nuts in general, but what helps Frangelico is that use of coffee and chocolate - there's a nice depth to the flavour profile which could have become pretty one-note, and the balance between sweet and savoury is pretty much bang on.

    The liqueur pairs well with a number of other drinks, which is probably why it's so popular. Coke, coffee, cream - even Tequila, believe it or not!
