Amaro Dente Di Leone


    The dandelion, (literally 'lion's tooth') was always thought to possess magical powers. The Ancient Greeks believed the seeds were dust thrown up by the chariot of Helios, the sun god. Dandelion leaves nourished Theseus for thirty days before his victory over the Minotaur. Lovers attempt to discover their amorous destinies by blowing dandelion seeds into the wind. Herbalists favor the mountain variety with its smaller, richer leaves and intense aroma. This complex aroma blends dandelion with other Alpine herbs such as gentian and genepy. It is sweetened with a pinch of muscovado sugar.
