Acquapazza Gourmet - Cetara (SA) - Campania

Why we chose them
Cetara is an ancient fishing village on the Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO heritage site, which for decades has lived on the processing of anchovies. The economy of the village was entirely grounded on fishing and on fish processing. Here is rooted the tradition of anchovy sauce, a sauce made from macerated fish, heir to the famous 'Garum' used by the Romans. Acquapazza Gourmet is a small artisan company, founded in the historic centre of Cetara, by three friends with a common passion for the sea and the fish processing tradition, especially for the processing of anchovy to produce Colatura di Alici. Acquapazza anchovy sauce, unlike other types of Colatura di Alici, is produced according to ancient and traditional methods, in small and precious quantities. Only anchovies fished in the Gulf of Salerno are used, which are then salted in chestnut barrels (called "terzigni") and aged for 18 months. At the end of the maturation phase, a hole is made in the bottom of the barrel, from which the anchovy sauce is drained ("colata", in Italian). A unique product that brings all the flavour and tradition of Cetara to the table
