Amaro Averna - 70cl - 29% ABV
Amaro Averna is produced using an ancient recipe made of herbs, which has been passed down from one generation to another since 1868.
Each of the most delicate phases of the production of the bitter, all of which take place in the herbalist’s laboratory, are stringently checked in order to guarantee the authenticity of the ingredients and the high quality of the product.
Averna is dark brown and almost viscous. It is sweeter than many Amari with easy to identify herbal notes of juniper, rosemary, and sage alongside an underlying citrus and a anise-like finish.
NEGRONI ADVICE -
We consider it one of the more approachable amaro liqueurs and makes for an interesting base in Negronis. Use a bold gin to shine though the big flavours, but fresh herbs like lavender or rosemary can be used as an unusual garnish to bring it all together with stunning results. For example, try fresh sage and you'll see how much it accentuates the juniper!
