VECCHIO AMARO DEL CAPO
Drawing on more than a century of experience and incorporating 29 botanicals, Vecchio Amaro del Capo offers a taste of Italy’s Calabria. Fully natural, this is a complex yet delicate amaro that’s beautifully balanced and exceptionally versatile.
One of Caffo Distillery’s most iconic products, Vecchio Amaro del Capo was developed from an ancient recipe and improved upon by four generations of the Caffo family.
Classified as an amari molto aromatici, or very aromatic bitter, Amaro del Capo incorporates 29 beneficial and medicinal herbs, flowers, fruits and roots from the rich land of Calabria. These are harvested throughout the year and processed separately using a combination of cold and hot maceration, distillation and aromatisation over 45-60 days. These are blended together with sugar and neutral alcohol and then filtered and bottled.
Bitter orange, sweet orange, orange flower, liquorice, mandarin, camomile, juniper, coriander, aniseed, peppermint, black anis, myrrh and gentian root.
Traditionally enjoyed as a classic Italian digestif, Amaro del Capo is best served neat and ice cold (we suggest -20°) to showcase its complex herbal notes, although it’s equally enjoyable in aperitivos and other cocktails.
Citrus and floral, with orange zest, lavender and jasmine, and deeper spice notes.
