More than 26 herbs went into this aromatic amaro, produced from an original 1901 recipe with roots on the Mount Etna side of Sicily. The essence of orange peel is no coincidence: The distillery is located among orange groves. The satiny liquid is a paradoxically cool stream of lava that's luxurious and decadent on the palate. There's no cloying sweetness, and the bitter cherry, anise, coffee bean, and black tea notes are delicately balanced.

First prepared by 13th century Italian monks as herbal medicines and elixirs, Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been combined with flavoring agents. A range of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits and flowers can be used, and a sweetener such as sugar or corn syrup is often added. While typically rather sweet, some examples are herbaceous or tart and pair exceptionally well with desserts or act as a delightful addition to cocktails.
