“Bicerin” is a well-known drink of gianduja cream (we describe it as a chocolate melted in alcohol), belonging to traditional Turin culture. It has been served in the city’s coffee houses since the beginning of the 19th century. Giandujotto BICERIN (15% vol./70 cl.) is a creamy liqueur without any coffee. A brief historical research has revealed that the coffee of the original 18th century recipe was replaced by hazelnuts, so as to evoke the taste of the world-famous giandujotto chocolate. This recipe variation originated in the early 19th century when coffee and cocoa were too expensive to be imported from other continents and in hazel-rich Piedmont hazelnuts began to be mixed with chocolate to cut costs. From this mixture the “giandujotto” chocolate and our Bicerin giandujotto liqueur derived. The recipe hasn’t changed since.
It is gluten free and dairy free. While other creamy liqueurs have a 6-9 month sell-by date, gianduiotto Bicerin has no such final date, even when opened, because it doesn’t contain milk. It is best preserved at room temperature.
In several northern Italian dialects Bicerin means small glass. Bicerin used in fact to be served in small glasses with metal handles in all Turin cafes.
Distillerie Vincnzi is the historical Turin producer of Bicerin Giandujotto, a liqueur of the Italian gastronomical tradition that can be compared to a delicious giandujotto chocolate melted in alcohol. After studying market needs and after two years of research and experimentation they have perfected the new recipe for Bicerin White, a creamy white-chocolate liqueur. Bicerin White is the perfect alliance of tradition and innovation, the tradition of the Bicerin brand and the innovative introduction of white chocolate in the preparation of creamy liqueurs.
Bicerin White aims at widening the area of choice of Distillerie Vincenzi customers, offering a unique, exclusive high quality product. It is the only liqueur produced with 40gr/litre of natural cocoa extract, the only one to be gluten free and dairy free, and with such a low alcohol proportion (15% vol.) as to have an almost undetectable alcoholic note.
Bicerin is an exclusive Vincenzi trademark, it is gluten and dairy free and has no final date for consumption, not even when it has been opened. It is best enjoyed cold or iced.
White chocolate is today requested by a large sector of the public, especially by discriminating consumers who want an innovative, pleasant, delicate sweet taste. The first mouth-watering glass of Bicerin White is guaranteed to stimulate the desire for having another at once.
It is marketed in a pearly iridescent glass bottle, further enhancing the prestige of the product.
It will certainly become one of the most interesting and sought-after summer drinks for its freshness and pleasant taste, especially if served cold with two ice cubes.
