• Alpe  Lys Aperitif/Amaro

Third generation distillery focusing on infusions of alpine herbs. There are 20 different herbs. To Michael this reminded him of excellent Darjeeling 2nd Flush black tea with light spice, bitterness and a touch of citrus peel and flowers. A cross between Amaro/Vermouth/Liquer, so quite fun. D&M Tasting Notes

30% ABV

An amaro made mostly from a variety of locally grown herbs, including gentian and gentianella, blended with bitter botanicals such as rhubarb root. The alpine herbs are picked in August, then dried, then infused in pure alcohol together with the other botanicals for about a month. Part of the liquid is re-distilled after infusion, to give the liqueur a more persistent flavor and to clarify color. It’s bottled at 30%, after the addition of spring water and sugar. As amaros go, this is only mildly bitter, perfect for an after-dinner digestivo.
