Montenegro Amaro Liqueur is an Italian Amaro traditionally made by infusing grape brandy with a (usually secret) mix of herbs, flowers, aromatic bark, citrus peel and spices ,a blend that can include anything from cardamom to elderberry flowers. Then it’s sweetened with sugar syrup and aged, sometimes for years. It’s silky, like a liqueur; bitter and sweet in varying degrees; aromatically complex; and, as far as we are concerned, both delicious and fascinating.

Montenegro Amaro Liqueur is wonderfully sweet and bitter with layers of citrus zest, black tea, mandarin orange, anise, coriander, and bitter cherry. A great way to end a meal.
