Zeppi's Bajtra Prickly Pear Liqueur

Zeppi's Bajtra Liqueur is made from Opuntia ficus-indica, a member of the Cactus family, commonly known as the prickly pear, that was introduced to the Mediterranean region from the Americas towards the end of 15th century. Eventually it found its way to Malta and Gozo, where it has flourished and become part of the local landscape of rubble-walled countryside. First used by the knights for its moisturizing property, the cactus fruit or prickly pear has lent its enticing fragrance and unique flavour to various local delicacies. The fruit is collected between August and September of each year from local farmers. The pulp from the fruit is extracted from the plant which is the typical “plate shaped” leaf, is sieved into vets and fermented with the addition of a yeast species. The yeast uses the natural sugar present in the fruit and turns it to alcohol. This is controlled to 25%. The alcoholic fruity extract produced, (fter several fining and filtration stages) is used as the main ingredient in the final product. The Zeppi's Bajtra Liqueur is a sweet, delicate drink that tastes very similar to the actual fruit. Enjoyed chilled or on ice, neat or as a long drink as an addition to wine coolers or poured in champagne. Capacity: 70cl Alcohol Volume: 25% vol
