Galliano is an alcoholic drink created in 1896 by Italian distiller[?] Arturo Vaccari, by blending local and exotic ingredients such as star anise and vanilla. The spirit was named after Maggiore Galliano[?], hero of the East African wars at the end of the 19th century. Galliano Liquore soon travelled across the borders with the Italian pioneers heading for the gold rush in California.

Galliano is a bright yellow color and is packaged in a distinctive tall bottle shaped roughly like the Eiffel Tower. Because the flavor is so exotic and unusual, it can be difficult to mix with other liqueurs. It is often used to make Harvey Wallbangers. Interestingly, it makes a delicious combination with triple sec, irish cream[?] and milk in a variant of the Screaming Orgasm[?].

Galliano[?] is also the name of a 1990s UK jazz funk[?]/dance band.
