Bottle Sizes


Frangelico (a brand of Noisette) is produced in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.

The origins of this nutty liqueur date back more than 300 years to the presence of early Christian monks living in the hills of the area. Their skills in fine food and drink would have included the art of distilling, especially the use of the wild hazelnuts and other local ingredients to create a liqueur on which Frangelico is based today.

Frangelico’s irresistible hazelnut taste starts with some very special hazelnuts. They even have their own name – Tonda Gentile – and are a speciality of the northern Italian region of Piedmont where Frangelico is produced. Tonda Gentile hazelnuts are known for being bigger, plumper and more uniform, with a skin that sheds easily, allowing for toasting without a bitter taste. Their sweet flavor is the reason they are so sought after by internationally known confectionery brands, Ferrero Rocher and Nutella, as well as by Frangelico. Frangelico buys around 38 tons of Tonda Gentile hazelnuts a year – all grown in the Langhe, an area of rural hills and picturesque villages in southern Piedmont which provides the perfect climate and soil.

Once the the hazelnuts have toasted and distilled with alcohol, they are then infused with cocoa, coffee, vanilla berries and other natural flavours. These tiny nuts are miraculously transformed into 4,500,000 bottles of Frangelico for enjoyment around the world, as well as in their native Italy.

So special is the Tonda Gentile Delle Langhe hazelnut that it is the first product of the Piedmont region to hold a protected status – equivalent to DOC or Appellation Contrôlée wine classification.

Tasting Notes

A sweet and nutty liqueur made from toasted hazelnuts, cocoa, vanilla, and other natural flavours. The aroma is rich and inviting, with strong notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a hint of chocolate. On the palate, it is smooth and creamy with a distinctive nutty flavor that is balanced by a subtle sweetness. There are also notes of chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon, giving it a warm and comforting taste.

To Serve

A great liqueur for sipping on its own, over ice or for adding a nutty flavor to cocktails.

Try in a Nutty Irishman:

  • 2 cl Frangelico
  • 2 cl Irish cream liqueur
  • hot coffee
  • whipped cream

Add the Frangelico and Irish cream liqueur to a heat-resistant glass, then fill with hot coffee. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with grated chocolate or cinnamon if desired.
