A Historic Collection of Amaro

Share

America has a current obsession with Amaro, Italy’s classic digestivo. These bitter spirits are being incorporated in cutting-edge cocktails, and in the States there are now homegrown versions of Amaro popping up all over the country (there are already at least three made in Brooklyn). Inversely, Italy has gone from a diverse selection of localized brands with many of the ingredients sourced from the surrounding environment to a market dominated by two or three producers. The reason for the shrinking of variety is that young Italians don’t want to drink the spirits that their parents drank – they’re more excited by whisky and the developing beer scene. This is bad news for Italy, but has allowed us to purchase an amazing collection of vintage bottles of Amaro. Many of the brands below have not been made for decades, and ones that are still produced are often currently made far away from their original locations. It’s also a treat to see how the spirits develop in bottle – perhaps not as dramatically as wine, but time does allow the different herbal elements to meld and become more unified. This is a striking collection. The labels themselves are often worth the price alone!  John Rankin

Ramazzotti Amaro (30%) 1.5 L

Be the ultimate hero of your holiday party: bring a magnum of vintage amaro! We believe this was bottled in the early 1990’s, when production was still taking place in the historical birthplace of Ramazzotti, Lombardy. Medium bodied, with bold, rich flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, baking spice, orange peel, and great balance between bitter and sweet, this would be a wonderful way to finish any meal, or to have as a party spritz. Simply serve on the rocks with a splash of soda and an orange twist. Oskar Kostecki
