Alpe Amaro (750ml)

SKU #1288622

Fulvio Calvetti is the third generation distiller for Alpe, a distillery started by his grandfather in 1948. Located in the Valle d'Aosta, a mountainous area in the northwest corner of Italy near France and Switzerland, Alpe produces a range of products showcasing the area's fresh alpine herbs. The only thing more beautiful than the bottle's stunning art-deco label is the exquisite balance of bitter and sweetness that derives from the secret recipe of herbs and spices all grown at high-elevation . A fantastic new entry to the digestivo category from one of the nation's premier Italian importers, Oliver McCrum. Imagine something in between Nonino Amaro and Montenegro.
