Bordiga Chiot Montamaro Bitters

Wonderful aromas of peppermint and coco nibs (Girl Scout thin mints) :) Then comes the cinnamon stick, fresh herbs, mint from the garden. There is a slight bitterness, but this amaro is on the sweeter side, very tasty!  This is a great Chartreuse substitute D&M Tasting Notes

Primary Botanicals: Mint, thyme, juniper, yarrow, genepy, caraway, wormwood, anise, Gentiana lutea, Gentiana acaulis

Botanical Source: Local are wild foraged between 500 and 1700 meters, with the majority above 800. Genepy, a protected plant, is the exception, and is cultivated above 2000 meters. Others sourced from Asia.  

Bordiga was started in 1888 by Pietro Bordiga, a bartender in Torino when the city was the epicenter of Italian spirts and cocktail culture. He decided to locate his distillery in the small town of Cuneo because it offered him a strategic position a little over an hour south of Torino, and also close to the Occitan Alps, where he was sourcing his wild botanicals. The climate there, influenced equally by altitude and proximity to the Mediterranean sea, creates herbs that are particularly rich in essential oils and aromas. His great-grandson, also named Pietro Bordiga, still lives above the distillery.

Chiot is a word in Occitan, the traditional language of this region, to describe a resting area in the alps where animals can be found grazing and weary travelers can sip an aperitivo. We love this amaro because of its nuanced flavors and big mouthfeel that bely its low ABV. Think traditional Alpine with cocoa nibs and black currant. Importer Notes
