About this deal

Amaro Montenegro was born in1885 with the name Elisir Lungavita and immediately received notable recognition. Amaro is both the Italian word for bitter and the name of a bittersweet style of liqueurs traditionally from Italy. These are extracted and mixed to make a unique and inimitable elixir and are divided into three categories: citrus, bittersweet and herbaceous. Of course they contribute bitterness but in many ways: citrus oil, vegetal/thistle, medicinal, herbal, even bitter fruits and berries. Having been previously put off amaro by some in-your-face aggressively bitter options, trying this was a wonderful reintroduction.
