Liquor made by macerating in alcohol myrtle berries or a mixture of myrtle berries and leaves, very popular in Sardinia, Italy, and Corsica, France. There are two types of this drink: Red Mirto, the color given by the anthocyanins of berries; White Mirto, a generic term used to describe liquor produced by maceration of the depigmented berries or obtained by maceration of leaves of young shoots. This liquor has organoleptic characteristics very different from actually Mirto liquor itself. It has an alcohol volume of approximately 30%.
