How to Use It
In a cocktail
Amaro Alpino & Tonic
While it may seem odd to pair a bitter mixer with a bitter amaro, these ingredients complement each other surprisingly well to create a cocktail packed with flavour. To make your own, start by pouring 40ml of Amaro Alpino into a collins glass. Next, add ice to fill the glass and top it with tonic water. To finish, add a lime wedge to garnish.
Inspiration behind the product
For Italians, bitterness or “amaro” is often seen as a desirable quality in many of their food and drinks. In their alpine environment, these bitter flavours can be found all over nature in fruits, roots, flowers and vegetables. Piero and Enrio often venture out into the nearby mountains and seas in search of new exciting flavours. While creating the recipe for Amaro Alpino, their inspiration came from a crossing they encountered during a two day trip through the mountains.
What makes it unique
By definition Amaro Alpino is an expression of the alpine region where the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains meet. It is made by cold macerating 30 herbs and botanicals including pine needles, orange peel, chamomile and lavender in a hydroalcoholic bath. This process helps bring out the ingredient’s flavours and helps create a spirit that works extremely well as an aperitif, digestive or component in a mixed drink.
