Amaro dell’Erborista, Distilleria Varnelli


This is one of the rarest amaros I’ve tasted. It’s completely raw- unsweetened besides a minor addition of honey, and prepared over a wood fire in the region of Marche. As with most amaro, the specific combination and ratio of herbs, roots and bark is kept quite secret, but this one’s character is true to its origin. No masks. This is straight-up medicinal.
