These roots are used to make tea or liquor. They can be used fresh or dried
Very rich in our region, yellow gentian root was used for a very long time on the mountain to make a quenching drink consumed during the summer hard work.
the drink based on gentian is obtained by extended maceration (9 months) of fresh roots crushed in a mixture of water and alcohol. It is manufactured exclusively from gentian root collected manually, as tradition dictates.
