Named after a medieval tonic for the plague with storied origins in the city of Marseille, Forthave’s flagship amaro nods to the origins of the brand. The mythology goes: four thieves in Marseille were captured and coerced into revealing the formula of the elixir used to protect them from the plague victims they preyed upon. This “Four Thieve’s Vinegar” (likely a phonetic corruption of “Forthave’s Vinegar”) may also be known as “Marseille Vinegar” or “Marseille Remedy” and serves as the botanical inspiration for MARSEILLE Amaro. In addition to the secret botanical recipe, three types of locally sourced raw honey provide their own unique profiles—from bright and grassy to rich and robust—providing extra layers of complexity.
