Few things are more Italian than a glass of amaro. Dating back centuries, this herbal liqueur was first crafted by monks believing it had supernatural powers. Production soon moved from small monasteries to expansive plants. The distillation process varied, but typically centered around a unique combination of herbs and spices that were infused into a rich spirit after maceration. Secrecy always remained integral - so much so that only a few family members of each generation knew the recipes, with different amaro variations including everything from flowers to roots. While the ingredients remained relatively unknown, its popularity grew rapidly. With over 300 available varieties, choosing one amaro is no simple feat. What sets Amaro Montenegro apart is its uniquely smooth, bittersweet flavor derived from our founder's secret recipe of 40 herbs and spices.
Wine EnthusiastOne of the lightest and gentlest amari, this amber spirit delicately mixes sarsaparilla-like herbal notes and honey sweetness with just the right bitter edge. Mix it into cocktails-mixologists love this amaro-or sip it as a delightful digestif.
