Santa Marta Italian Amaretto 500mL

The Amaretto is an almond-flavoured Italian liqueur. The name amaretto originated as a diminutive of the Italian word amaro, meaning "bitter", which references the distinctive flavour lent by the mandorla amara (the bitter almond) or by the drupe kernel. It is soft on the palate with a sweet almost marzipan like flavour.

Distillerie Francoli was founded by Luigi Francoli in 1875 and is still family owned to these days. Distillerie Francoli is famous for their grappas their fine range of liqueurs under the Santa Marta label.

Santa Marta Amaretto is only made of natural ingredients: an infusion of apricot, cherry and bitter almonds stones, toasted cocoa beans, vanilla pods, orange peel and orange blossom. After a short fermentation this infusion is distilled and mixed with natural sugar and more alcohol.

Amaretto can be drunk by itself, used as an ingredient to create several popular cocktails or added to coffee. It is also commonly used in a number of dishes or desert. Our recommendation is on the rocks.
