While mixology trends have changed, Stanislao's recipe and process have remained the same since 1885. 40 herbs and spices are macerated for up to 30 days while an extract is created in boiling water. It is then distilled to capture the most aromatic portion, ensuring a wide range of bittersweet flavors including orange peel, coriander and tea. The separate parts are mixed together with water from Italy's Gran Sasso Mountains, a liquid renowned for freshness and clarity. The amaro, however, is not complete until one last ingredient is added - an ingredient so secret only a handful of people in the world can name it. Lastly, the precious liquid enters the same iconic bottle Stanislao created over 130 years ago - a testament of timelessness and style.COLOR: Rich, deep amber colorNOSE: Displays early botanical scents of orange peel, fresh not dried coriander, red cherry, pekoe tea and cucumberFINISH: Aftertaste is moderately bittersweet and citrusyPALATE: Palate entry is sweet at first then it quickly turns mildly bitter and botanical.

In 1885, Stanislao Cobianchi's parents set the young man on a virtuous, ecclesial path, yet Stanislao had other ideas. He exchanged a life in the church for one of adventure. Stanislao traveled from Bologna to the Balkans, where he experienced exotic flavors from around the world. Returning home with his spoils of secret herbs and spices, Stanislao opened a distillery and named his perfectly balanced, bitter sweet Amaro after Princess Elena of Montenegro in honor of her wedding day.In 1906, he opened a new distillery to meet growing demand, and the distinctive drink soon became the toast of Italy. Legendary Italian poet, Gabriele D'Annunzio, famously called it the "liqueur of virtues." It appears Stanislao didn't stray too far from his parents' wishes after all.Today, while Stanislao's recipe may still be a secret, Amaro Montenegro's appeal is well known. The number one Amaro of Italy is becoming a fast favorite of U.S. mixologists and consumers alike.Discover the incredibly versatile, award-winning liquid, expertly crafted for over 130 years.
