Amaro Del Capo 35 Cl70
Distilleria F.lli Caffo S.r.l.
Regular price €10,90
The symbolic product of the Caffo Distillery is the Vecchio Amaro del Capo, a Calabrian herbal liqueur. The Veccio Amaro del Capo is the result of an ancient Calabrian recipe that was later reworked and improved upon using the experience of four generations of the Caffo family. The Vecchio Amaro del Capo contains the active ingredients of many beneficial herbs, flowers, fruits, and roots from the generous land of Calabria. Infused in the finest alcohol, it aids in digestion and gives a pleasant feeling of well-being. Among the 29 official herbs that make up the infusion are some classic Calabrian tastes and smells such as bitter orange, sweet orange, licorice, mandarin, chamomile, and juniper. Its gentle and aromatic taste is well suited to even the most delicate of palates, not accustomed to "Amarissimi". Remember that, as the best Calabrian tradition dictates, it should be consumed iced (at -2°C in the classic Capo glasses) to enhance the characteristics of the herbs. The Vecchio Amaro del Capo is among the most widespread traditional bitters in Italy and boasts the distinction of being the first amaro to be offered iced, as seen in slogans launched by the company as early as the 70s when consumption mainly took place in the summer and the drink was only distributed in Calabria. In 2010, Vecchio Amaro del Capo was the only Italian amaro to be awarded a gold medal at the world competition in Brussels.

The entrepreneurial history of the Caffo family dates back to the last decade of the 19th century, when Master Distiller Giuseppe Caffo, born in 1865, began distilling the pomace on the slopes of the Etna volcano. After years of experience in the trade and management of distilleries, he realized his dream by taking over an old distillery in Sicily in Santa Venerina in 1915, with the intention of devoting himself to his passion and passing on his acquired knowledge to his children.
