Wine & Spirits: "A new year can hardly pass without another radiant offering from Lance Winters and Alameda-based St. George Spirits. Bruto Americano is an American aperitivo, bittered largely with gentian root, while California-grown Seville oranges and buckthorn bark provide orange and woodsy notes. The flavor may recall Campari (with a hint of Aperol citrus)—as does the color, a lush vermillion derived from cochineal, as Campari used to be—but the soothing texture and complexity puts it in a category of its own. BA’s gorgeous Italian futurist label sh...

A bergamot-forward aperitivo that can be enjoyed in a range of cocktails. From the distrillery: "Italicus is lightly citrusy on the nose with hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, fresh tones of ripe citrus fruits are balanced with a light bitter and floral spice before giving way to a complex and long lasting finish."

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "The seductive bouquet offers wonderfully floral, fruity, guava- and melon-like fragrances of elderflower, becoming richly pear- and quince-like following aeration time. The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur. *Best Buy* (PP)" (04/2008) K&L Notes: Double Gold Medal at the 2007 and 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition! St. Germain is an artisanal French liqueur made from hand-p...

This is the fabulous Kina l'Avion d'Or. Watch out Lillet and Cocchi Americano, this is a traditional Kina Aperitif recipe coming from a hundred year old recipe from a distillery in Switzerland. Richer than expected, it doesn't have the light heartedness of the Americano, but it certainly makes up for it in term of depth. The nose is deeply perfumed and wild! The palate has the perfect interplay between bitter and sweet. This is sure to be a classic.

Another of Tempus Fugit's historical recipes. Very few liqueurs capture the essence of their components quite like the incredible products from Tempus Fugit. By using exacting research and traditional techniques, they've taken us back to the golden age like no other modern brand. The Crème de Banane is not the exception; like all Tempus Fugit products, it sets the bar for the category in terms of flavor, authenticity and quality. Because it's made with real bananas, the liqueur has all the complexity and depth of a perfectly ripe banana plus a ton of com...

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is lovely, balanced, properly astringent, ripe and juicy with scents of cherry stone and cherry juice. The palate entry is decadently sweet and textured with vibrant tastes of cherry compote and cherry preserves at midpalate. The finish is svelte, moderately syrupy and downright delicious. An outstanding liqueur: use it in an Aviation Cocktail." (12/2007) K&L Notes: This classic ingredient is a must-have for every serious cocktail bar.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "New to the U.S. market in 2012, this 'dry' Curaçao is intriguing and should work well as a sophisticated sweetener alongside bitter-edged spirits and darker, biting spirits like rye whiskey. While not precisely dry, this golden liqueur has its vanilla sweetness tempered by a wash of bitter orange. The scent is rich and agave-like, with a touch of mezcal-like funkiness.

Wine Spectator: "Although many amari boast a secret formula comprising a multitude of ingredients-Fernet-Branca ($30) contains a total of 27, giving it a licorice, menthol and raisin character - certain flavors are well-trodden.

Tempus Fugit is a California-based spirit brand that started with absinthe and specializes in liqueurs, aperitifs, cordials with history.

Mr. Black is the new cold brew coffee liqueur from one of the world's great coffee cultures - Australia.

Ortolan is a modern, distinctly Californian take on the historic Italian category of rosolio. This ancient category of liqueur was enjoyed in European courts from the 15th to 19th centuries as an aperitivo and digestíf, a lighter and more ethereal antecedent of amaros.

Each variety contributes its own scent, flavor, and hue to create an experience more complex than other rose flavored products: lifted note...

Although it’s Cognac-based, it’s a versatile match for other spirits, too. The liqueur is extremely aromatic, with lots of sweet and bitter orange notes exploding out of the glass.

From the exceptional team at Tempus Fugit Spirits, this authentic Violette recipe stands out from the crowd of other violet liqueurs. Officially distinct from what's available, the Tempus Fugit Violettes is classified as a liqueur rather than a crème. This means less sugar. Light and ethereal, it does not come off as soapy or overly aromatic. In addition, the use of cochineal for coloring means that no artificial dye is needed. Clearly one of the best violettes on the market despite not adhering to the category's standardized color scheme.
