Made in Italy, this liqueur is created with a century-old recipe that includes maceration of more than 40 herbs and spices followed by aging in oak casks; its name is an homage to Princess Helen of Montenegro and her marriage to Victor Emmanuel III. The amaro's pleasing taste of sweet and bitter notes can be enjoyed as a digestif or in cocktails, and it scored 95 points in 2015 from the Beverage Testing Institute.

"Not only is Amaro Montenegro a kindler, gentler amaro, it’s also a lot more balanced than many of the other amaro on the market, and its light character makes it much more affable to mix with."

Product Details

130 years in the making, Amaro Montenegro’s secret recipe features the essence of 40 unique herbs and spices from around the world, collected during the travels of discoverer and herbalist Stanislao Cobianchi. Perfected in 1885, the full recipe is known by only one person today,and its name is an homage to Princess Helen of Montenegro and her marriage to Victor Emmanuel III. The liqueur is deep amber in the glass, with aromas of botanical orange peel, fresh not dried coriander, red cherry, pekoe tea and cucumber. The palate is sweet at first then mildly bitter and botanical; by mid-palate, there’s a slight sweetness of tangerine and mandarin peel with a bittersweet and citrus-y finish. The amaro is enjoyable neat or on the rocks as a digestif, or added as a component in cocktails.

    Wonderful in Martinis

    (Posted on 4/28/2016)

    I order this product because it is so much better than other similar products I can find locally. It's really good in a martini with a bit of citrus. Love it.
