Tasting Notes

Fulvio & Giulia Calvetti of Distilleria Alpe, use a wide array of local herbs, roots and spices to create their terroir-driven, alpine inspired infusions.  Some ingredients macerated to create Alpes “Amer Du Val D’Aoste” include mint, wormwood, cinchona bark, gentian, baking spices, rhubarb root, licorice and orange peel, among others.  The Amer gets its deep amber and mahogany hue from the addition of hibiscus and the natural oxidation of spirit and sugar.  One sip will transport you directly to Valle d’Aoste.  Simultaneously bitter, sweet, warm and cooling, you all need this freshness in your glasses and bellies!
