Product Details

This Italian liqueur from Sicily is dark chocolate brown in the glass, with tempting aromas of bitter orange, cola, quinine and herbs. Bittersweet and slightly spicy on the palate, it has flavors of bitter orange zest, coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, cola and rosemary, and a long, lingering finish. It is made from a recipe that’s been passed down the generations since 1868, and is made from an infusion of herbs, dried flowers, spices and licorice. The producer suggests drinking it neat or frozen, or as digestif after a big meal. It's also great in small amount to add a bitter and herbal component to cocktails.

About the Producer

Averna was founded in Sicily, Italy in 1868 by Salvatore Averna, who is said to have obtained the secret recipe for an herbal elixir around ten years earlier from an order of friars. His son Francesco Averna launched the company to prominence in 1895 and today, Averna Amaro is Italy’s best-selling amaro.
