When the herbs hit your tongue

like a big bitter bomb, that’s Amaro…

If you’ve ever been to Italy you know that Italian EMBRACE the bitter side of the flavor spectrum: from espresso to 89% cacao bittersweet chocolate to radicchio, they GET that lush and sweet flavors are better when balanced with a firm kick in the palate by bitterness. As a result, every town larger than Playa del Rey has it’s own local Amaro, often with roots in a local pharmacy where it was first concocted as a cure all and degestivo.
