Amaro Gorini

This amaro is named for my grandmother, Lena Pianta. She loved southern Italian spirits and we think this one would’ve made her bar cart. A blend of 13 botanicals including gentian, rhubarb root, fennel seed, and sweet and bitter orange rest for 3 weeks in non-GMO neutral grain spirit. The mixture is proofed down to 40% abv and barrel aged in used whiskey barrels for a minimum of 3 months. When we feel it’s ready to go, we filter from the barrels and sweeten with organic cane sugar as well as organic caramel color. We add further fresh orange peel and let that sit another several days. It’s strained again and bottled. We love it on the rocks with an orange peel but it shines in a Paper Plane cocktail.
