At St. Agrestis we celebrate the traditions of Italian aperitivi and digestivi. With old world methods, St. Agrestis is made with real herbs, spices and citrus for real aperitivo and digestivo drinkers. Brooklyn has always pushed the creative boundaries, and St. Agrestis continues this heritage with unique spirits that change the way we think about classic herbal spirits. We aim to create perfectly balanced and incredibly flavorful spirits while reinventing the way you drink some of the world’s most iconic cocktails.
Made differently than most, St Agrestis Amaro Liqueur contains twenty herbs, spices, flowers, roots, seeds and citrus that are individually macerated in cane distillate. Individual macerations allow us to taste and smell each herb as we extract so that we can hone in on perfect flavors and aromas, which are accomplished at different rates, depending on the botanical. Once all twenty tinctures are ready, they are blended together and aged in ex-bourbon barrels for sixteen weeks as a method to allow the flavors to integrate with each other while picking up hints of toasted vanilla from the oak. St. Agrestis Amaro is intended to be spice driven, perfectly balanced amaro on its own, but has quite a bit of versatility in cocktails. Driven by cinnamon, clove and allspice at the forefront, St. Agrestis Amaro is marked by unparalleled freshness and intensity. As the spice subsides on the palate, it transitions into a cooling sensation from the spearmint and peppermint. On the finish, green savory notes compliment the nuanced sarsaparilla root – all in perfect harmony.
