Vecchio Amaro del Capo, Caffo

The history of the Caffo family business dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, when Master Distiller Giuseppe Caffo began distilling. His sons founded what has become Grupo Caffo, distilling a small range of spirits from grape (i.e. grappa). The Caffo brothers soon began producing and earning recognition for their fruit and herbal liqueurs and classic Italian spirits. Today, their approach remains driven by ingredients and agriculture, and Grupo Caffo operates estate farms in Calabria and Sicily, solely to supply their spirit productions.

Tasting Notes

Vecchio Amaro del Capo is the flagship of the Fratelli Caffo distillery.  Distilled from sugar beets, then macerated with 29 herbs, spices, roots, fruits, and flowers from Southern Italy.

This digestivo italiano is complex on the palate, revealing bittersweet flavors of orange, chamomile, licorice, and juniper. Enjoy cold, at room temperature, or in cocktails, and see how the drink’s expressions change and develop as the temperature changes. It’s herbal aromatics begin to give way to warm fruity flavors and great acidity to balance.
