AmaroAmaro means “bitter” in Italian. No legal definition exists, and though it originated in Italy, amaro (plural: amari) can be made anywhere. Originally created to aid in digestion, it is a bittersweet liqueur made from the maceration or distillation (or combination) of herbs, spices, roots, flowers, or other botanicals. Often uses neutral spirit as the base, but other liquor or wine can be used. Can be aged. Sugar is added before bottling. ABV varies, but tends to be 20-40%.
"Lighter in flavor and body, it does share the same deep, chocolaty hue as its well-known Italian counterpart. There is plenty of intense spicy, herbal and bitter character on the palate that you’d expect out of this style of amaro—most prominently menthol but with a touch of cedar—and it finishes on a pleasant chamomile note.
