China-China has been produced by the Bigallet family since the early 1870s. Its unique and intense flavor is derived from a combination of sweet and bitter oranges that are put through a three-stage maceration/distillation process along with anise, gentian, cinchona, clove and a few other spices. The resulting liqueur has vibrant orange aromatics, earthy vegetal notes, and subtle spice with hints of herb and mint on the palate.
