Italian Amaro

Tue, Oct 15, 2019
The Drake Mini Bar

The favourite after-dinner drink of generations of Italians is the focus of this seminar and tasting. Learn about the origins of the digestif and how it reflects and embodies the concept of terroir. We’ll cover how Amaro is produced, the growth of the category over the last decade, the different sub-categories (including Rubarbaro, Alpine and Fernet) and how best to integrate these products into cocktails—adding depth to a cocktail program.
