"Displays early botanical scents of orange peel, fresh not dried coriander, red cherry, pekoe tea and cucumber. Palate entry is sweet at first then it quickly turns mildly bitter and botanical; by midpalate there's a slight sweetness of tangerine/ mandarin peel. Aftertaste is moderately bittersweet and citrusy. 90-95 Points Superb/Highly Recommended" - Paul Pacult - The Wine Enthusiast
Excellent substitute for vermouth in a Manhattan cocktail. **** Highly Recommended Spirit Journal, September 2017.
Montenegro Amaro. One of the lightest and gentlest amari, with orange and rosewater notes, Montenegro was named to commemorate the marriage of Princess Helen of Montenegro to Italy's King Victor Emmanuel III in 1896.
Amaro Montenegro, "the liqueur of the virtues", was created in 1885 thanks to the lengthy, impassioned experiments of a famous distiller and herbalist, Stanislao Cobianchi. The name "Montenegro" is a dedication to the beautiful princess Elena of Montenegro, who was engaged to Victor Emanuel III. In its over 100 years of history, Amaro Montenegro has seen its success grow continuously up to the present day, now being one of the leading brands on the Italian market.
