Amaro with Alpine Herbs
“Amaro”, a drink obtained from infusing in alcohol different types of pleasantly bitter-tasting herbs, is a product that falls, rightly so, into the category of Italian excellence. Its history goes back a thousand years, beginning with the first infusion experiments by Hippocrates, through the Benedictine monks in their fortified abbeys and their knowledge of phytotherapy, to the present day where Amaro plays the undisputed starring role at the end of a meal. The Bottega Amaro Elixir with Alpine Herbs embodies this long tradition and is the synthesis of the creativity and passion of a company, which, for generations, has dedicated itself to the liquorist’s art. Fresh with a strong personality, it has intense and persistent notes.
The Bottega Amaro Elixir with Alpine Herbs is made with extracts and distillates that tell of the territory and its fruits. It’s a blend of approximately 30 botanicals, including alpine herbs, flowers, spices and berries (such as gentian, absinth, lemon balm, juniper, star anise, mountain pine, nettle, elderflower, thyme, mint, blackberry, raspberry, currant, etc.). It is a product with a strong character and a complex, structured flavor which represents the meeting point between tradition and innovation, between traditional extraction and maceration techniques and their evolution which has enhanced the particular features of each essence used. A production technique that gives the Bottega Elixir unique and original notes that blend with the typical notes of the long tradition of Amaro with alpine herbs.
